Welcome to 2007, and if you’re in New York, your assignment is to go to the library. Not the big building with a bunch of books, but the Brandy Library in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood. We’ll talk with spirit sommelier Ethan Kelley about one of America’s best whisky bars. In the news, researchers have found new photos of Laphroaig legend Bessie Williamson, Burn Stewart brings out a 10-year-old Ledaig single malt, Maker’s Mark announces the dates for its annual Thoroughbreds and Redheads Weekend in April, and honors for Malt Maniac-turned writer Ulf Buxrud.
