WhiskyCast Episodes

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”.


Episode 438: August 18, 2013

High West Distillery & Saloon in Park City, Utah. Image ©2013 by Mark Gillespie.Utah’s High West Distillery & Saloon crams a craft distillery and high-end restaurant into two historic buildings in the ski resort’s downtown area. James Dumas, a James Beard Award-nominated chef  and partner in High West, takes us on a tour of the distillery for this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth, and it’s often hard to tell where the distillery begins and the restaurant ends. Dumas didn’t learn to appreciate what whisky offers until he started working with High West founder David Perkins, but now, he’s a complete convert, as he showed us during the tour.

In the news, Tomatin takes top honors at the Whisky Fringe for the second year in a row. We’ll also have the latest on new whiskies from Tullamore Dew, Single Cask Nation, and a new series of Jameson bottlings…along with a reason to skip the duty-free shop if you’re flying on Ryanair.
