Apr 11, 2019

In this continuation of our spirited tour of Islay with Scotch enthusiast Adam Safir, some of the things we discuss include:

  • How a new distillery has changed the Islay landscape for the first time in over 100 years
  • Why non-age statement whiskies may be on the rise, and how to approach bottles that don’t have age statements.
  • A bit of discussion about various barrel finishes, including rum and sherry casks.
  • How to decide when a particular bottle isn’t living up to its potential
  • What language you need to learn if you want to know who adds caramel coloring to their Scotch whisky
  • And much, much more
