High Noon / New Riff Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon

High Noon / New Riff Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon

Bob and Brad throw it back to 1952 for their review of High Noon, director Fred Zinneman's near-real-time western suspense classic. They discuss both the divisive performance and salacious Hollywood history of star Gary Cooper before praising the frequently-appearing Thomas Mitchell. In the latter part of the episode they break down the movie's role as both a metaphor of and a response to the Red Scare.

Meanwhile, they finally give a proper view to New Riff Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon, a 100-proof whiskey that they fell in love with two years ago uon their first visit to the distillery. With over 200 whiskeys reviewed since, how will this one hold up?
