This week’s episode comes from Whiskey Live Dublin, and we’ll be focusing on Irish whiskies this time around with some of the winners from Thursday night’s Irish Whiskey Awards ceremony at Kilbeggan Distillery. We’ll also get the details on the most expensive Irish whiskey ever released, the Midleton Very Rare 30th Anniversary Pearl Edition…as well as the upcoming US debut of Yellow Spot. It won’t be an all-Ireland show, though…we”ll hear from Chip Tate on his side of the Balcones Distilling dispute now that his gag order has been lifted, and while Bourbon’s global boom is causing a boom in Kentucky’s economy, a slowdown in Scotch whisky sales has prompted Diageo to slow down its expansion plans in Scotland.
