March Whisk(e)y Madness… Now Hiring… Whisk(e)y Wednesday!

by | Mar 8, 2022 | Whisk(e)y & Wine Guy Blog | 0 comments

Good afternoon! Just finished watching the USD Coyote Women punch their ticket to the NCAA Basketball tournament! It was pretty cool to see a full house at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center cheering on the Coyotes and the Jackrabbits! We will have the SDSU men’s game on in JJ’s Bar tonight, so stop down and watch with us and maybe a beverage and some food! March Madness is certainly upon us, so we have something fun planned for you…

March Whisk(e)y Madness Bracket Challenge

We are going to have a tournament! We have selected sixteen whiskies, that are currently available (not allocated) that we are going to send home with you in the form of a tasting kit. There will be two ounces of each of the whiskies for you. You will be pouring yourself 1/2 ounce for each round, comparing the appropriate bottles, and then voting on which one is your favorite!

This will start on Thursday, March 17th. The same day as the NCAA basketball tournament, but you don’t have to complete the first round in one sitting. We are giving you the better part of week to work your way through the first sixteen samples and register your votes!

Did I mention the whole process is a blind tasting? You will only learn the contents of each bottle AFTER it has lost a round or is crowned the JJ’s March Whiskey Madness Whiskey Champion! What do you do with the losers? Drink them, of course!

This is going to be a lot of fun, and we fully expect to sell out, so don’t hesitate to buy your kit. Here is the link – JJ’s March Whisk(e)y Madness Bracket Challenge

Whisk(e)y Wednesday – Single Barrel Edition

We currently have THREE single barrel whiskies on our floor. We have a new one being released tomorrow as well! Our 2nd Edition New Riff Single Barrel Bourbon will be ready to go home with you on Wednesday, March 9th after 12:00pm! WHISKEY WEDNESDAY PRICING WILL NOT APPLY TO THIS RELEASE, so no extra discount for shopping on Wednesday on this guy.

We will have the rest of our spirits on sale for 30% off List Price, plus Half Price whiskey flights AND a feature flight! We will be featuring all FOUR of our current single barrels in this week’s feature flight, but you will not know which is which! We will do a matching game like we did last week. Guess them correctly to earn chances into this week’s bottle raffle. What is up for grabs?

  • 1792 Full Proof Single Barrel – 9th Edition
  • Buffalo Trace Single Barrel – 10th Edition
  • Jack Daniel’s 10-Year-Old Tennessee Whiskey

Should be a fun raffle and a fun flight! You get a free entry into the raffle just by showing up. You will get one extra chance by purchasing the feature flight. You will earn extra chances into the raffle by guessing which whiskey is correct. One extra chance for each correct answer. And you will earn extra chances by purchasing a food item to snack on while you are here! All raffle entries MUST BE IN by 5:45pm. The raffle will commence at 6:00pm.
