This Week on WhiskyCast

If you said they should seek professional help, Dr. Kaveh Zamanian might not disagree with you. Then again, that’s just what this highly trained psychoanalyst did, setting aside his practice to form Rabbit Hole Distilling in Louisville. We’ll talk with him on this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth and get an update from Sweden with Mackmyra’s Angela Forsgren D’Orazio. In the news, the saga of Australia’s Nant Distillery is headed for court again, Tullibardine gets a new master blender, and John Glaser revives Compass Box’s Double Single blend with a new edition.

 


WhiskyCast pioneered the genre of whisky-focused podcasts, and we’re still going strong in our 12th year! The very first episode of WhiskyCast hit the web on November 12, 2005, and since then, we’ve produced hundreds of hours of original audio and video content for whisky lovers like you around the world. Our community spans at least 150 different countries, and we’ve done stories on whiskies made in the far north of Scandinavia all the way to the tips of South Africa and Australia – and everywhere in between. We’ve met many of you at whisky festivals and while visiting distilleries, and hope to meet many more of you over time.

We’d also like to thank our many sponsors over the years, both present and past. Without their support, WhiskyCast would have faded into the mist years ago. Thanks to them, we’ve been able to continue growing and producing new content for you each week, while still maintaining our standards for quality, fairness, and ethical reporting on whisky. By the way, if you’re interested in reaching a global audience of committed whisky lovers, please get in touch with us to discuss advertising opportunities on WhiskyCast!

Slainte!
