About our drink:

Cody Road Single Barrel Bourbon

Buffalo Bill Cody lived life large. Born just a mile from our distillery, we honor his legend with a BIG whiskey. This limited wheated bourbon is hand-selected one barrel at a time. Bottled at barrel proof of 105, we encourage you to live life large the Cody Road way.

Grain bill

70% corn, 20% wheat, 10% barley

Serving style

Add a splash of water or an ice cube to bring out the big flavor. Outstanding in classic cocktails like an Old Fashioned or a Julep.

Tasting notes

Bold vanilla and caramel soar out of this high proof bourbon. The sweetness of corn gives way to buttery wheat and a unique finish of roasted nuts and toffee

About the gear:

Paracord.

Parachute cord (also paracord or 550 cord when referring to type-III paracord) is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of parachutes. This cord is useful for many other tasks and is now used as a general purpose utility cord by both military personnel and civilians. This versatile cord was used by astronauts during the 82nd Space Shuttle mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.[1]

The braided sheath has a high number of interwoven strands for its size, giving it a relatively smooth texture. The all-nylon construction makes paracord fairly elastic.

Current technical standards for the manufacture of cord for use in parachutes are published by the Parachute Industry Association. The US military MIL-C-5040H standard required the material to be nylon.[2] Similar styles of cord are manufactured with other materials such as polyester.[3]

About our topic:

Obedience is a topic that isn’t talked about much. Possibly because authority isn’t taken seriously anymore. Possibly because we live in a world that doesn’t know how to deny our own will. We discuss these implications in this week’s episode.

Drinking: Cody Road Single Barrel Bourbon

Gear: Paracord

The Virtue of Hope: How Confidence in God can Lead You to Heaven by Fr. Philip Bonchanski

The Virtue of Hope is excellent spiritual reading for everyone, an instruction manual for how to grow in hope and in bravery in the face of life’s challenges. It is a clarion call that hope must not be merely theoretical, but must “lead us to a deeper relationship with God, an encounter with the One who loves us and calls us to friendship with Himself.”

About our topic:

We try to lay out what hope is but also shows how we can exercise this theological virtue, through being daring, changing our ways, serving the Lord, struggling, suffering, and praying. We examine how hope directs us to our ultimate goal of life with God and gives us the strength and perseverance to attain it.

About our guest:

Father Philip G. Bochanski, a native of suburban Philadelphia, was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia in 1999.  In addition to several parish assignments, he has served as a high school teacher, chaplain for cloistered nuns, and spiritual director for seminarians. In 2017, he was appointed the executive director of Courage International, an apostolate that provides pastoral care to men and women who experience same-sex attractions and have chosen to live a chaste life.  He is an award-winning author, and has published several articles, books and audio lecture series on such topics as Church history, spirituality and pastoral care.

About our topic:

CCC 828:

By canonizing some of the faithful, i.e., by solemnly proclaiming that they practiced heroic virtue and lived in fidelity to God’s grace, the Church recognizes the power of the Spirit of holiness within her and sustains the hope of believers by proposing the saints to them as models and intercessors. “The saints have always been the source and origin of renewal in the most difficult moments in the Church’s history.” Indeed, “holiness is the hidden source and infallible measure of her apostolic activity and missionary zeal.”

And CCC 829 brings it home:

 “But while in the most Blessed Virgin the Church has already reached that perfection whereby she exists without spot or wrinkle, the faithful still strive to conquer sin and increase in holiness. And so they turn their eyes to Mary”:306 in her, the Church is already the “all-holy.”

About our drink:

Spey Trutina – A single malt scotch whisky. A well-balanced single malt from the SPEY range released in late 2016 (alongside their first peated whisky – Fumare) matured in bourbon casks. The name comes from a Latin way of expressing balance, and the whisky certainly falls in line with that idea. A release of 18,000 bottles.

About the gear:

A Latin Dictionary.

About our topic:

The 7 Liberal Arts. Liberal arts, college or university curriculum aimed at imparting general knowledge and developing general intellectual capacities in contrast to a professional, vocational, or technical curriculum. In the medieval European university the seven liberal arts were grammarrhetoric, and logic (the trivium) and geometryarithmeticmusic, and astronomy (the quadrivium). In modern colleges and universities, the liberal arts include the study of literature, languages, philosophyhistorymathematics, and science as the basis of a general, or liberal, education. Sometimes the liberal-arts curriculum is described as comprehending study of three main branches of knowledge: the humanities (literature, language, philosophy, the fine arts, and history), the physical and biological sciences and mathematics, and the social sciences.

About our guests:

Andrew Pudewa is the director of the Institute for Excellence in Writing and a father of seven. Traveling and speaking around the world, he addresses issues related to teaching, writing, thinking, spelling, and music with clarity, insight, practical experience, and humor. His seminars for parents, students, and teachers have helped transform many a reluctant writer and have equipped educators with powerful tools to dramatically improve students’ skills.

Although he is a graduate of the Talent Education Institute in Japan and holds a Certificate of Child Brain Development from the Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, his best endorsement is from a young Alaskan boy who called him “the funny man with the wonderful words.” He and his wonderful, heroic wife, Robin, have homeschooled their seven children and are now proud grandparents of eleven, making their home in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

It’s then moved to new charred barrels and aged for an additional 30 days. This creates a rich, dark amber colored liquid and a smooth yet complex flavor profile not found in any other Reposado, with hints of cooked agave, vanilla, allspice, clove, and oak.

The Catholic Man Show - Cigar 101 with Ultimo Cigars

The Catholic Man Show - Cigar 101 with Ultimo Cigars

June 14, 2019

Cigar 101 with Tomas Baldonado from Ultimo Cigars

Every once in a while, we break away from our normal routine on The Catholic Man Show to have a conversation with someone we think is a craftsman, expert in a field, and/or has an interesting story. Our guest, Tomas Baldonado from Ultimo, fits all 3 categories.

Many men aren’t sure where to begin when picking up their first stick. In this episode, we sit down with Oklahoma’s first and only licensed manufacturer of premium handcrafted cigars.

In the January edition of Cigar Aficionado Magazine, Ultimo Cigars was mentioned in an article entitled, “50 Factories in the U.S. that still make Cigars“.

Things you will learn:

  • Anatomy of a cigar
  • How to find a cigar that fits your palate
  • How to cut a cigar
  • How a cigar is made
  • Types of cigars
  • How to keep cigars fresh
  • How Tomas paired a cigar with a beer
  • and much more

About Ultimo Cigars:

Ultimo is a charming Micro-Factory located in the heart of Midtown Tulsa, Oklahoma, on the South-West corner of 31st Street and Sheridan. Home of the Scissortail Cigar, all our products are exclusively hand bunched and rolled by our master torcedor, Tomas. As we expand our business we will also expand our facility. We are looking forward to soon adding a large 1,250 cubic foot, walk-in aging room. Additionally, we will have the capacity to add 8 full time torcedores, producing up to 1,200 cigars daily. We welcome you to come enjoy an authentic, unique experience at Ultimo Cigars!

About our drink:

Oppidan Smoke + Sea is a combination of their 4 Grain Straight Bourbon and Solera Aged Bourbon mash bills, finished in French oak and peated Islay scotch barrels. The French oak adds structure and dark fruit notes while the Islay casks add a layer of smoke, earth, and sea to the already malty and chocolaty bourbon. Bourbon on the nose and front palette with a briny and peaty finish. Because this was batch number 2, we know that the whiskey was placed in either Ardbeg or Laphroaig barrels!

About the gear:

Although the first cufflinks appeared in the 1600s, they did not become common until the end of the 18th century. Their development is closely related to that of the men’s shirt. Men have been wearing shirt-like items of clothing since the invention of woven fabric 5,000 years BC. Although styles and methods of manufacturing changed, the underlying form remained the same: a tunic opened to the front with sleeves and collar.

By the middle of the 19th century the modern cufflink became popular. The shirt front, as well as collar and cuffs covering areas of the most wear, were made sturdier. This was practical but when clean and starched, collars and cuffs underscored the formal character of the clothing. However, they could be too stiff to secure the cuffs with a simple button. As a consequence, from the mid 19th century onward men in the middle and upper classes wore cufflinks. The industrial revolution meant that these could be mass-produced, making them available in every price category.

Auxilium Christianorum has 2 principal aims of the association: 1) To provide prayer for priests associated with Auxilium Christianorum so that their apostolate in driving out demons is efficacious. 2) To provide prayers for the members – priests, laity, family and friends – so that they are not adversely affected by the demonic.

The Church teaches us that it is divided into the Church Triumphant (which includes the members of the Church in heaven), the Church Suffering (this includes the members of the Church in purgatory), and the Church Militant (this refers to those members of the Church who are alive in this world). Because we are part of the Church Militant, we are in a spiritual warfare and this spiritual warfare requires that we recognize, as Saint Paul teaches us “For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.” (Ephesians 6:12)

The members of the Auxilium Christianorum should always bear in mind the reality of our state as members of the Church living in this world. Despite St. Paul’s teaching, many Catholics do not take seriously their obligation to wage war against the demonic forces. It is, for this reason, the Association of the Auxilium Christianorum was founded.

The Catholic Man Show - Tim Staples on Mary our Mother

The Catholic Man Show - Tim Staples on Mary our Mother

Catholic Answers Director of Apologetics and Evangelization, Tim Staples, joins us in studio.

About our drink:

We sipped on a little homebrew from Southeast Oklahoma. We were told it was a Choc beer. There are several discussions of the origin and composition of choc beer, but the one that seems most realistic is that the name was first applied to an alcoholic drink made by the Choctaw Indians from wild plants found in what is now Southeastern Oklahoma.

However, by the mid-1930’s, during the depression years, choc generally referred to any homemade, slightly alcoholic beverage. The drink was made from a variety of inexpensive raw materials, depending on availibility, and was usually barely palatable. In the Southwest, the fermenting liquid that dripped from ensilage and collected in the bottom of silos was sometimes drunk. It was also not unusual for people to collect spoiled fruit from grocery stores, put the fruit in a bucket of water, and leave it under their house porch until it fermented. Luckily, the process has been tweaked over the years so it is light, refreshing, and very drinkable.

About the gear:

“Behold your Mother” by Tim Staples

From the cross Jesus gave us his mother to be our mother, too: a singularly holy model, consoler, and intercessor for our spiritual journey. Yet most Protestants—and too many Catholics—don’t understand the role that God wants her to play in our lives.

In Behold Your Mother, Tim Staples takes you through the Church’s teachings about the Blessed Virgin Mary, showing their firm Scriptural and historical roots and dismantling the objections of those who mistakenly believe that Mary competes for the attention due Christ alone.

Combining the best recent scholarship with a convert’s in-depth knowledge of the arguments, Staples has assembled the most thorough and useful Marian apologetic you’ll find anywhere.

He also shows how all the Marian doctrines are relevant—even essential—to a salvific faith in Jesus. From her divine maternity to her perpetual virginity, from her Immaculate Conception to her Assumption, the Church’s core teachings about Mary are intertwined with the mysteries of Christ. In a word, Mary matters.

Read Behold Your Mother and find out just how much.

Also available as an eBook

About our drink:

American Prairie™ Bourbon is named after the American Prairie Reserve, a group working to create the largest wildlife reserve in the lower 48 states.

High West Distillery is passionate about the American West’s natural beauty. That’s why we want to raise awareness of one of the most fantastic projects of our time: the American Prairie Reserve in northeastern Montana. This is an amazing effort to assemble the largest wildlife reserve in the lower 48 states. When stepping onto the plains of American Prairie Reserve, it’s easy to imagine the landscape as Lewis and Clark and Native Americans saw it, with thundering herds of bison, racing bands of pronghorn antelope and prairie dog towns dotting the horizon. When complete, the Reserve will be approximately 5,000 square miles; larger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Grand Teton National Parks combined. Go to americanprairie.org to learn how to visit and support this worthy cause.

Capable of running at speeds up to 55 miles per hour, the pronghorn antelope is North America’s fastest land mammal and performs the continent’s second longest land migration of more than 500 miles. Because of their love of travel, pronghorn require large areas of open and intact grasslands. Moreover, pronghorn populations have decreased 98% since the 1800’s due to habitat destruction. American Prairie Reserve helps pronghorn through its ongoing fence removal efforts and by conserving wildlife corridors.

Our American Prairie is a carefully crafted blend of straight bourbons at least 2 years old, (see highwest.com for technical details and sourcing.) making a great sipper and thoughtful person’s whiskey. High West supports the American Prairie Foundation, to find out more go to americanprairie.org

About our drink:

Double Cask Gold is the new name for Gold as part of Macallan’s relaunched range introduced in 2018. Aged in a combination of first fill and refill sherry casks, it is designed to sit between the now-defunct 10yo Sherry Oak and 10yo Fine Oak bottlings.

About the gear:

History of umbrellas is long and eventful. From the earliest appearances of simple palm leaf umbrella, long age of being synonym to wealth, to the modern time when is regarded as general item, umbrellas managed to intersect with our history in many interesting ways. Advancements in technology, changing tastes, and use in religion all enabled umbrellas to grow and prosper, becoming one of the principal ways we protect ourselves from rain. Protection from sun with umbrellas and parasols slowly faded out from fashion, which can be contributed to the rise in popularity of hats. Continue reading….
