WhiskyCast Episodes

WhiskyCast is where it all begins. Now in our 18th year, each weekly podcast brings you the latest in whisky news, along with the latest events, tasting notes, comments from other listeners, and the weekly “In-Depth” segment features interviews with the people who help make whisky the “water of life”.


Episode 248: April 17, 2009

This episode comes from the Highlander Inn in Craigellachie, Scotland…the heart of Speyside! We’ll hear from Highlander co-owner Duncan Elphick and the manager of the Highlander’s world-class whisky bar, Tatsu Minagawa, about the Highlander’s history and its whisky selection. In the news, Scotch whisky exports hit a new high despite the economy, a mothballed Speyside distillery will be sold and closed forever, new distillery tours, and a new GlenDronach. I’ll also go to whisky school with Donald Renwick and the faculty at Royal Lochnagar!
