The debate over whisky auctions and the provenance of some of the whiskies sold at those auctions continues with the saga of a Bowmore said to have been bottled in 1850. It sold at McTear’s in Glasgow last month for more than $50,000, even though historians questioned whether the whisky was as old as advertised. Scotch Whisky Review editor Dave Broom’s update of the story appears here on the WhiskyCast web site, and we’ll hear from Dave on this episode. In the news, a new Talisker, potential buyers for Glenglassaugh, honours for Edrington’s chairman, and another tale of sadness…and sharing…at airport security.
