WhiskyCast features cask strength conversation each week, with the latest news on whiskies from around the world, whisky events, Mark Gillespie’s tasting notes, and the “WhiskyCast In-Depth” segment.
Welcome to WhiskyCast!
This week, we’re on location at the Victoria Whisky Festival in British Columbia! We’ll discuss a new range of premium Canadian whiskies coming this fall from the Hiram Walker Distillery with master blender Dr. Don Livermore, and sit down for a dram with veteran whisky writer Dave Broom to solve some of the whisky world’s problems. In the news, there’s a new Canadian Whisky of the Year, and we’ll have highlights from the 2017 Canadian Whisky Awards, along with another expansion at Ireland’s Midleton Distillery and a rare sighting of a “unicorn” whisky – believe it or not…a peated Balvenie!
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!
