Not sure if ya'll have seen this or not, but I didn't find it in a search. Below is a link to the series Three Sheets (all 3 seasons) and in Season 2 there's an episode titled "Kentucky" that was interesting and amusing. It included The Bourbon Bistro, The Sherwood Inn, the Pappy Van Winkle clan, and moonshining. http://www.hulu.com/three-sheets

After watching the first 10 minutes I was really excited about this program. I figured it was about to talk about the process and different bourbons. I started to get worried when it was obvious he did not know anything about the PVW he was drinking. 75% of the show is just about getting smashed.

100% of the series is about getting smashed, hence the title "Three Sheets". :cool:

Well, it's more about drinking cultures first, getting smashed second. I think it's also a desperate search for a way to prevent hangovers.

I get a kick out of this show. Zane is out to punish his liver though. I was disapointed with the Kentucky show. Once he connects with his college room mate it becomes a "back to school days" episode and less about American Whiskey. That said the other episodes are quite entertaining.

I saw a few folks that I know, including the band and Popcorn. I thought it was funny the way they used the ???? for his subtitles, you just cant understand that man!

I just saw this episode recently which was am interesting insight into bourbon but it was also interesting to listen to the Julian VW and his son speak along with the various characters and secret apple pie shots from the Sherwood bar. I was looking at their forum on the three sheets site and found a guy who claims he bought a bottle of 25yo PVW.... :skep:


Could this be true or is it a farce?

I love this freaking show, and never saw the thread before so thanks for the bump Stones! Somehow though, I'd missed the Kentucky episode... Or I got Steve McKenna'd and forgot it. :slappin:

I actually like how he doesn't know much about what he's going to be drinking. He doesn't go in with any built up notions and he never argues with his hosts.

Much better than another Travel Channel show host...

No trouble at all, yeah its a great show and even better when presented by a - sorry for the pun - Zanny guy! My partner is from Croatia so she totally got into the episode when he was there. Of course, i totally got into the Kentucky episode. :grin:

I love Three Sheets and the KY one was one of my favorites.. so much that I keep it saved on my DVR.

Actually the Bourbon KY episode is one of the reasons I decided to seek out a Van Winkle Bourbon.. so I can credit that show to getting me into bourbon!

I got a chance to ask Preston how he liked shooting that show at a Van Winkle dinner.. he said that he has never seen two guys more hung over in his life.. especially Steve Mckenna who was slumped over in the corner during the shoot.

I guess they actually shot the Van Winkle part the morning after the Sherwood bar. haha - then Preston said - I guess he was Steve Mckenna'd

The Kentucky episode inspired me to visit the distilleries last August. The rest is history.

I love the part when he holds up the glass of pappy 23 and says "Now thats good Van Winkle" and smiles

I finally found a copy of this episode to download and watch... I enjoyed the Pappy tasting with Julian & Preston, and cracked up at the antics in the bar at night. really got a laugh out of the Steve McKenna shirts :lol:
