Episode 158: August 17, 2008

A double feature with two (actually, three) great whiskies to talk about this week! Glenlivet’s breaking the age barrier with its first 25-year-old single malt, and we’ll taste it with Ian Logan. David Mair of The Balvenie will tell us more about the new Balvenie Signature, along with a special distillery-only bottling he snuck out of Speyside for a trip to New York…the Balvenie Rose. In the news, China gives Scotch Whisky trademark protection status, the Famous Grouse releases a new duty-free expression, and Bruichladdich asks us to compare and contrast.
