WhiskyCast Virtual Tastings is your place to test your nosing skills. Each month, we bring together a panel of listeners either by Skype or in person at a whisky festival to taste and score whiskies. You generally won’t find the ultra-rare exclusive bottlings here…we focus on whiskies that you’re most likely to find at your local pub or retailer. If you’re interested in being on the tasting panel for an upcoming episode, just use our contact form to get in touch!
