This week's Whisky Photo of the Week focuses on Shinji Fukuyo, the fourth Chief Blender in Suntory's history. Had the chance to meet him and do an interview the other day at a Suntory event in New York City. His mentors included two of the previous chief blenders, Seiichi Koshimizu and Koichi Inatomi, both of whom have also appeared on WhiskyCast over the years.
WhiskyCast added a new photo.
Think it's easy to cut peat out of a bog? WhiskyCast listener Mark Williams shared this photo of his experience cutting peat Tuesday during a tour at Laphroaig Distillery on Islay...
By the way, he says he's having a great time. Went to Scotland to celebrate his 40th birthday! Thanks for sharing the photo with us, Mark!
