On this week’s show the guys sample The Balvenie Single Barrel 12 year, First fill ScotchTim Bojanowski, president of Zest Social Media Services joins the guys to sample and to discuss his involvement in Baltimore County Public Schools’ Apprenticeship Program.

Tim has a fascinating story as he never quite felt he fit in while attending college but always had an entrepreneurial streak. At age 20 he left school to found Zest SMS and the rest is history.  Zest provides web design and marketing for some of the most well-known companies in the Baltimore Metro Area and Maryland.

Tim is passionate about education and how our educational system isn’t a one-size-fits-all model and should allow for direct development with employers to give students the right skill set to obtain a job in the real world.  The discussion with Adam, Kurt and Jeremy is wide ranging and deep.  And of course there’s scotch.

Here’s a description from The Balvenie’s website:

bottle number

The Balvenie Single Barrel First Fill is a 12 year old single malt whisky, aged in a first fill, ex-bourbon cask. Almost all Scotch whisky is matured in casks previously used by Bourbon distillers. When brought to Scotland and used for the very first time they are known as ‘First Fill’.

Our Malt Master samples the aged whisky, cask by cask and selects only those characterized by sweetness and subtle vanilla oak to be bottled as The Balvenie Single Barrel First Fill.

A series of “limited editions” – Each bottle is one of no more than 300 drawn from a single cask and each is hand-numbered and carries the number of the cask in which it matured


NOSE Honey notes, overlaid with sweet fruits and subtle spices.

TASTE Rich and complex with deep vanilla oakiness.

FINISH Lingeringly sweet.


Gideon provides his own tasting notes as the group savors the flavor.  We hope you enjoy as well.
