It’s easy to stick to the official distillery bottlings of whiskies, but a visit to specialty shops may pique your curiosity with independent bottlings. Many come from very familiar distilleries, but some bottlings are so rare that they may be the only way to find out what a distillery’s single malt whisky tastes like. We’ll hear from Euan Shand of Duncan Taylor & Company, Lorne Mackillop of Mackillop’s Choice, and Malt Advocate’s John Hansell plays devil’s advocate for us. In the news, Pot Still owner Ken Storrie is standing up to Glasgow regulators, Chivas Brothers takes on a Chinese newspaper, and another woman cracks the whisky world’s glass ceiling…it’s a new month, and time for another new episode of WhiskyCast!
