Episode 123: December 16, 2007

Single malt scotches and Japan’s single malts are a world apart in geography, and some might say the same applies to taste as well. This time around, we’ll hear from the man behind Suntory’s award-winning Yamazaki single malts, distillery manager Hiroyoshi “Mike” Miyamoto. Mike also has a history in Scotland, where he worked at Morrison Bowmore after Suntory purchased it in 1994. That gives him a unique perspective that few have on whiskies of the world. In the news, new whiskies and more on the “Macallan 1856″ saga.
