This time around, we’re on the road in Dublin for the launch of the first cask-strength Jameson Irish Whiskey, the new Jameson Bow Street 18. It’s also the first Jameson expression in many years with a direct link to the Jameson family’s old distillery on Bow Street in Dublin, since the casks used for Bow Street 18 spent their final year of maturation in the new mini-warehouse at the Jameson Distillery Bow Street visitor experience. We’ll have that story in the news, along with late-breaking news on another new distillery planned for Islay.

On WhiskyCast In-Depth, we’ll talk with Benromach Distillery manager Keith Cruickshank about the Speyside distillery’s dual anniversaries this year: Benromach’s 120th anniversary and the 20th anniversary of its reopening by Gordon & MacPhail. We’ll also have some of your comments, the week’s tasting notes, and much more!
