Back on the road again, and this episode comes from the New Brunswick Spirits Festival in Fredericton, New Brunswick! We’ll have highlights from the festival, which is now in its 23rd year, and on WhiskyCast In-Depth, we’ll get the story behind the revival of Red Spot Irish Whiskey. This single pot still classic from Dublin’s Mitchell & Son disappeared in the mid-1960’s, and the pleas of Irish Whiskey fans were answered this week when Irish Distillers and the Mitchell family launched the modern version of Red Spot. We’ll also have tasting notes for a rare Ladyburn single malt and explain just what “Christmas Cake” has to do with whisky on Behind the Label.
