This week’s episode comes from Frankfurt, Germany…during a layover on my trip to visit the Amrut Distillery in Bangalore, India. However, we’re focusing on a rare breed of whisky this week…the Peated American Single Malt. There are very few examples of this rare breed, one being Leviathan from Lost Spirits Distillery on California’s Monterey Peninsula. Bryan Davis of Lost Spirits explains his reasons for producing a highly-peated single malt in this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth. In the news, Dewar’s enters the flavored whisky market, Highland Park unleashes the shape-shifting Loki on the whisky world, and Scottish officials consider reviving the old Dallas Dhu Distillery in Speyside as a working distillery as well as a museum.
