This time around, we’ll get the other side of the debate over the rare Bowmore that sold for more than $50,000 at McTear’s in Glasgow last month, despite questions over its exact age. Martin Green is the whisky consultant for McTear’s, and was responsible for verifying its provenance. Martin states his case in this episode. In the news, Bowmore’s releasing a new Black Bowmore — and giving one away in a web contest…a new chairman for the Scotch Whisky Association, and details on a special deal for WhiskyCast listeners!
