The lineup for the "Bowmore On The Rockies" whisky dinner at the Rimrock Hotel in Banff, Alberta on November 2, 2013. Photo ©2013 by Mark Gillespie.This week, we’re in Banff, Alberta for a very special Bowmore weekend in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. The “Bowmore on the Rockies” weekend featured a dinner with the entire 1964 Bowmore Trilogy series of Black, White, and Gold Bowmores, the 1995 release of the original Black Bowmore, and the 1964 Bowmore Fino Sherry Cask. Morrison Bowmore’s Master of Malts, Iain McCallum, joins me to discuss the newest releases from Bowmore, Auchentoshan, and Glen Garioch, along with some of the issues facing the whisky business today. In the news, the man wanted for questioning in the Pappy Van Winkle theft turns out to be Bardstown High School’s principal…who told investigators he was trying to buy some Pappy, not sell it.
