Lippy takes the “New Kid” out for a walk around the block a few times. Tequila Alquimia is up for tasting/ranting and Th’ Lip is FINE FORM! –SPECIAL GUEST Mike Morales joins in the fun with his report from his stint as a judge at the “Spirits Of Mexico” competition where he tasted 114 tequilas! Now HOW do you get a JOB like that? Mike tells all!
Lippy gets DEEP into some sticky-sweet emotional territory in this “Tequila FIGHT”!
While the tequila reviews are interesting and scholarly as always(?) it’s the MUSICAL soundtrack to this episode that will twist your knickers! Turns out The BEATLES showed up in all of their remastered MONO glory — and they decide to hang out for the entire show. Add to this, the sweet nostalgia of Lippy’s cousin, Les, chatting in from their hometown in Penna., and you have a fully emotionally satisfying conclusion. Is that a tear of joy in his eye, or is it the TEQUILA talking?
In this emotionally angst-riddled episode, th’ Lip is doing some ‘internal work‘ in public as he grapples with the prospect of: A. — Continuing to pay for his tasting bottles with his OWN MONEY, or B. — Accepting promotional bottles from the distillers directly.
Gee, wonder what he decides to do??
