Episode 341: October 30, 2011

Each autumn, Woodford Reserve releases its Masters Collection whiskey, a variation on one of the five elements of Bourbon defined by Oscar Pepper and James Christopher Crow 160 years ago. This year’s edition is actually two 100% rye whiskies, with one aged in new oak barrels and the other in refill Woodford barrels. Master Distiller Chris Morris unveiled them this week, and explains them in this episode. In the news, they’re cheering in Wick, a bit of rumor control with Laphroaig’s Simon Brooking, and the annual Pappy Van Winkle whiskies are on the way.
