Mark Gillespie moderated a tasting panel with Forty Creek’s John Hall, Canadian Whisky Awards founder and author Davin de Kergommeaux, and the “Whisky Lassie,” Johanne McInnis.

While Forty Creek is a sponsor of WhiskyCast Virtual Tastings, we have elected to present this tasting panel as a special episode because of its educational value to whisky lovers as a rare opportunity to hear whisky writers discuss a flight of whiskies with the person who created them. WhiskyCast’s Mark Gillespie maintained editorial control over the content of this episode, and the opinions of each panelist are his or her own.
