Charles Maclean is one of the world’s top whisky writers, and is marking 30 years of writing about the water of life this year. We’ll hear from this Master of the Quaich about how he developed his love for whisky and his nosing skills, along with what he likes and doesn’t like about whisky these days. In the news, Graham Eunson leaves Glenglassaugh to become distillery manager at Tomatin, Diageo’s Scotch distilleries show an increase in visitor traffic, and the UK prepares to mix whisky with politics…in one polling place.
