Our first episode! Charles and I walk through a few new products to arrive in the shop and then a blind tasting! Charles brought in a sample of something special and by nosing & tasting, I had to try and guess the age, distillery, cask type etc. My grade was a B- according to Charles, I’ll take it! We do reveal live, on the show, what the whisky was but we will also list it in the next podcast release notes. Then we go on to discuss Clynelish, one of our favorite distilleries in Northern Scotland and what makes it so special. Ending on the big, big news in the whisky industry; the purchase of The Whisky Exchange, an online retailer, by Pernod Ricard – holy crap!
