Lots to talk about this week, with new whiskies and a new version of a very old whisky. Whyte & Mackay is producing a new release of MacKinlay’s to help raise money for the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust, which maintains the historic sites from Sir Ernest Shackleton’s expeditions to Antarctica. In the news, Nikka whiskies are on their way to the US, Woodford Reserve unveils this year’s Masters Collection Bourbon, and we’ll get an update on Wiser’s plans to increase its profile worldwide. Dr. Nick Morgan of Diageo joins us for WhiskyCast In-Depth to discuss distillery expansions, this year’s Special Releases from the Classic Malts, and the global impact of Blended Scotches.
