Episode 76 – West Overton Distilling – Aleasha Monroe and Sam Komlenic

This episode features Aleasha Monroe and Sam Komlenic of West Overton Distilling.

Some familiar and many not so familiar faces filled the large room at West Overton Museum.  The sold out crowd of over 100 people showed up to talk, drink and learn about rye whiskey.  More specifically Pennsylvania Rye Whiskey was the focus and topic of conversation.  The distinguished panel included: David Wondrich who is widely hailed as one of the world’s foremost authorities on the history of the cocktail and one of the founders of the modern craft cocktail movement.   Lew Bryson who is currently a Senior Drinks Writer for The Daily Beast, and is also a columnist for Craft Spirits magazine. He is the author of Tasting Whiskey.  Steve Bashore who is the Director of Historic Trades and head distiller at George Washington’s Mount Vernon.  Sam Komlenic who has been the copy editor for Whisky Advocate magazine for 15 years, led and navigated the evening’s discussion.  Old Overholt Bonded Straight Rye Whiskey welcomed all in attendance.  Aleasha Monroe, head distiller, was introduced to the crowd.  As dinner was served talk began of the history of whiskey and more particularly rye whiskey in Pennsylvania.  For almost an hour an a half thoughts and facts were exchanged.  Breaks were taken to toast the featured rye whiskeys from throughout the state.  First Liberty Pole Rye Whiskey, followed by Stoll and Wolfe Pennsylvania Rye Whiskey and then Dad’s Hat Monogahela Rye Whiskey.  For the first time West Overton Distilling Monogahela Rye Whiskey was tasted.  The discussion got the most heated on the topic of what defines the Monoghahela style or brand.  Listen to this episode as Aleasha and Sam deconstruct the festivities.  We discuss some of the highlights and taste the 3 expressions that are now on sale only at West Overton Distilling.

American Whiskey Convention 2021 – Part 1

Finally, the 16 month wait was over. The American Whiskey Convention 2021 was a major success. With over 250 whiskeys and bourbons to sample it was a hard decision on where to start. We got to meet and speak to some incredible people in the industry. Guests shared their observations on what their favorite picks were and who stood out as a surprise.

The theme this year was Whiskey on the Water and it was hosted by the Independence Seaport Museum. There were master distillers and experts on hand to share the latest stories and philosophies about all things whiskey. Discussion forums focused on the grain. The Convention was created by the Delaware Valley Fields Foundation in 2016. It pays homage to the farmers and those caretakers of the grains that we all love so much. Laura Fields worked tirelessly this year to make sure that the event was compliant with local covid rules. The event is an opportunity for novices and experienced whiskey aficionados alike to enjoy their own experience. The people that we spoke to came away with a fantastic experience. There is so much to see and do that you can’t possibly do it all in one evening.

Ethan Smith

🎙Check out the latest episode featuring Ethan Smith. Ethan has a passion and curiosity for the old Bomberger’s Distillery which was more recently Michter’s in Pennsylvania. The seed for Ethan’s hunger to discover Michter’s was planted in him when he was a kid. Originating in a brochure rack. It reappeared in an antiques store and since that fateful day he has been consumed with the Michter’s legacy. Even turning his home into a makeshift Michter’s museum to preserve the famous history. Michter’s closed on Valentine’s Day 1990 but, Ethan helps to keep the story alive.
