France is known more for wine and cognac than whisky, but Jean Donnay hopes to change that perception. Jean’s Glann ar Mor Distillery on the Brittany Coast is already receiving high marks for its whisky, and was a runner-up for Distiller of the Year in Whisky Magazine’s 2010 Icons of Whisky Awards. We’ll hear from Jean in this week’s episode, along with tasting notes for two Glann ar Mor expressions. In the news, Whisky Magazine announces its World Whiskies Awards, Maker’s Mark makes a choice for its new bourbon, and comments on the last episode’s interview with Ralfy Mitchell of Ralfy.com.
