Episode 48: July 8, 2006

There’s no arguing that John Glaser of Compass Box is one of the whisky industry’s leading innovators, but John’s latest creation has been pulled off the market after a conflict with the Scotch Whisky Association over traditional practices. We’ll hear from both sides, and there’s a lot of news as well in this episode. Ardbeg’s turning out a 40-year-old, the Famous Grouse has a new nest online, there’s another addition to the WhiskyCast book club, and if you’ve ever wondered what working in a distillery would be like, a Wild Scotsman wants to give you the chance to find out.
