Episode 138: March 30, 2008

In the last episode, I mentioned the growing controversy over proposed UK legislation that would set specific labeling standards for Scotch Whisky, including a new name for what have been known as “vatted malts”. Trouble is, support for “blended malts” is not unanimous, and critics are speaking out. Mark Reynier of Bruichladdich is one of the most outspoken critics of the legislation and the influence of the Scotch Whisky Association in preparing it. We’ll hear from Mark, along with SWA spokesman David Williamson.
