Episode 39: May 10, 2006

Whisky is a passion for distillers, but it’s also a science…and good scientists experiment to see what might make a good whisky and what won’t. Harlen Wheatley of Kentucky’s Buffalo Trace Distillery is a chemical engineer by trade and a distiller by choice, and a new collection of his experiments are being released for whisky lovers to sample. We’ll hear from Harlen about his experiments, along with a contest to challenge your whisky nosing skills, and Suntory’s Lincoln Henderson helps answer a listener question…all on this episode of WhiskyCast!
