This week’s episode was recorded on location at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on the day before the 2012 Indianapolis 500 (won by Scotsman Dario Franchitti). The Speedway holds a lot of memories for me, and I decided to make the trip this year for the first time in many years…and found some Scotsmen who feel the same way about Indy. We’ll hear from them, and more to the point, we’ll discuss the revival of another Irish pot still whiskey that’s been gone for four decades. Irish Distillers has re-created Yellow Spot, one of the legendary Irish whiskies that holds a special place in the hearts of many Irish whiskey lovers. Kevin O’Gorman of Irish Distillers shares the process of reviving this classic whiskey with us.
