A double feature this time around: William Wemyss shares his family’s Scottish heritage with a line of single cask and blended malts named to describe what the whiskies inside taste like. We’ll also start a two-part series looking at the growth of microdistillers in the U.S., featuring Jess Graber of Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey, Jay Harman of The Notch, and Brian Ellison of Death’s Door Spirits. In the news, Bruichladdich unleashes the Octomore peat monster and the X4 quadruple-distilled spirit on the world.
