Episode 198: May 3, 2009

The judges at Whisky Magazine gave Highland Park’s 21-year-old Scotch the title of World’s Best Singe Malt in this year’s World Whiskies Awards, and that has the guys on Orkney jumping for joy…except for one little problem. They’re in the process of tweaking it because of supplies…and Jason Craig will explain in this episode. In the news…no news on the merger front, the Spirit of Speyside Festival kicks off Whisky Month in Scotland…and Benromach honors a sailing legend.
