Back from Scotland, and plenty to talk about. This episode features highlights from the World Whiskies Conference in Glasgow, as well as a rare interview with retired Suntory master blender Koichi Inatomi. In the news, Springbank’s distillery manager heads north to take over Duncan Taylor’s new distillery project in Huntly, along with a new 40-year-old single malt from Glenfarclas, Highland Park’s plans to phase out two travel retail releases, and new travel retail expressions from The Balvenie and Grant’s.
