The most secure jobs in the whisky business may be the coppersmiths at Forsyth’s of Rothes in Scotland, since almost all of the major distillery construction projects underway worldwide are buying their stills from Forsyth’s. We got word of two more new distilleries this week…the Morrison family’s Glasgow Whisky Distillery to be built on the Queen’s Dock along the River Clyde and Bernard Walsh’s new distillery in County Carlow, Ireland. Tim Morrison and Bernard Walsh join us to discuss their plans on WhiskyCast In-Depth. In the news, the search is on for the “Pappy Pilferer”, two whisky auctions this week raised tens of thousands of dollars for charities, and if you’re feeling a cold coming on, this week’s tasting notes may have just the answer.
