WhiskyCast is where it all begins. Now in our 18th year, each weekly podcast brings you the latest in whisky news, along with the latest events, tasting notes, comments from other listeners, and the weekly “In-Depth” segment features interviews with the people who help make whisky the “water of life”.
Crown Royal master blender Andrew Mackay didn’t have to look far when it came time to create a successor to the original Crown Royal XR, which used whiskies from the old Waterloo Distillery in Ontario.

In the news, Edinburgh’s North British distillery is open again after receiving a clean bill of health from inspectors following the area’s Legionnaire’s disease outbreak. We’ll also update last year’s visit to Knockdhu Distillery, and Bonhams has pulled a controversial Ardbeg bottle from this week’s auction in New York City.
