Since starting t8ke.review, it has been a pleasure to have made a number of guest and media appearances. As a result of his work, Jay has been featured in podcasts, cask selections and product releases in the spirits world. Check them out below, and feel free to contact me with any questions.


Gear Patrol

I was surprised, but also stoked, to see t8ke.review featured in a recent Gear Patrol piece regarding Instagram accounts/reviewers. Labeled the “most prolific whiskey reviewer on the internet” by Gear Patrol’s home and drinks editor Will Price is certainly an honor. Check out the piece here.

It was a pleasure to contribute a short segment to support a really awesome new blog post from Mezcal Reviews . Their new post knocks it out of the park comparing the culture and some interesting aspects of scotch whiskey and its drinkers with mezcal and the community involved.

Dixeebe Mezcal Launch Event

Just this past week, Dixeebe Mezcal officially launched. It was a pleasure to join Mezcalistas, Panorama Mezcal, MezcalReviews.com and S.A.C.R.E.D by invitation from MezcalPHD to hear from Asis Cortes and his father Valentin, about the launch of a new brand focused on respecting and celebrating the history, triumphs and culture of artesenal Mezcal.

While many faces were present during the Zoom call, I respect their right to privacy and grabbed just this capture of Asis and I since we were conveniently positioned above one and other.
