Nick Savage: Action Hero or Whisky Maker? (Episode 913: December 27, 2021)

OK, the headline is a tease…of course Dr. Nick Savage is a whisky maker. In fact, he’s been the master distiller and blender at Scotland’s Bladnoch Distillery for the last couple of years. He’s just created the latest three Bladnoch single malts, and joins us on this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth. Speaking of heroes, though…there are a lot of them in the whisky world, and many of them helped raise $3.4 million to help Kentucky tornado victims in the Kentucky Bourbon Benefit auction. We’ll have the details in this week’s news, along with a look at one of the groups behind the auction in our Behind the Label segment. It’s our final episode for 2021, so pour a dram, relax, and enjoy this week’s WhiskyCast!
