(VIDEO) Episode 06 – “Show Me Smokey”

(2017)  So, you’re at the bar drinking some delicious Whiskey, when some lady at the bar tells you to take off your clothes.  In an effort to divert her attention, you show her “Smokey” instead.  Before you get any ideas, “Smokey” isn’t code for anything but a seductive look.  Now, get your mind out of the gutter, and watch our show filled with talk of nudity, LOL.

Enjoy this edition of Northwest Bar Night as we taste two products, offer our first impressions, then play a game to better describe these great beverages.  And we do it all from the confines of “The Factory Luxe” at the Old Rainier Brewery, a piece of local brewing history!  Don’t forget to include our hashtags when you tweet about @NWBarNight:  #BarNight  #NakedNight  #Liquor  #Whiskey  #ShowMeSmokey

This Episode’s Category:  Whiskey

Remember, this is a blind tasting.  We only identify the drinks as “Green” and “Blue.”  Once the panel tastes the drinks and picks a favorite, we reveal what they’re drinking.
