For the first time, Diageo is releasing single cask bottlings from all 27 of its malt distilleries in Scotland. Diageo’s malt master, Dr. Nick Morgan, explains how the Manager’s Choice malts were selected, and also previews this year’s Distiller’s Edition series of single malts. Graeme Wallace will preview the first Whisky Show in London coming up in November, and we’ll listen in on the first (ri)1 Iron Bartender Competition held in New York this past week. In the news, new single malts from Ardbeg, Bowmore, Edradour, and Glen Garioch, and I taste a 30-year-old Lagavulin!
