Marcel Van Gils has been collecting Laphroaig expressions since 1997, and the Dutch dentist has what is likely the world’s largest collection of Laphroaigs. His collection even includes the empty cask Prince Charles signed during a visit to the distillery in 1994! Marcel will tell us about his collection in this episode, and in the news, more on the Glen Breton controversy, U.S. whisky sales are being affected by the recession, and we’ll hear from James Robertson of Tullibardine and Frances DuPuy of A. Dewar Rattray.
