The Whisky Guild held its annual “Whisky on the Hudson” tasting and dinner cruise in New York City the other night, with more than 900 people on hand to taste dozens of whiskies. I’ll have some of the highlights on this week’s episode, including a visit to The Balvenie’s Warehouse 24 room and chats with some of the U.S. microdistillers on hand. In the news, a new peated Glenmorangie, 10 single casks from BenRiach, a new Macallan 1824 Collection expression, and an update on the “Water of Life” Drive for Charity: Water.
