The WhiskyCast Tasting Panel is your place to test your nosing skills. Each month, we bring together a panel of listeners to taste and score whiskies. You generally won’t find the ultra-rare exclusive bottlings here…we focus on whiskies that you’re most likely to find at your local pub or retailer. If you’re interested in being on the tasting panel for an upcoming episode, just use our contact form to get in touch!

WhiskyCast Virtual Tastings, December 2011

There may not be a “White Christmas” in many parts of the world this month, but we’ll have one on this episode of WhiskyCast Virtual Tastings. Our panel of Simon Seaton, Kevin Andresen, and Jeff Stuebben tasted three “white” whiskies: Buffalo Trace’s Wheated Mash White Dog, Culpeper Distillery’s Original Moonshine, and Canada’s White Owl whisky.
