Supermarket Single Malt (repost)

Posted in Podcasts on September 2nd, 2007

Does single malt scotch have to be expensive? Do you have to go to a specialty shop to get a good one? Not always! This time around we take a look two "supermarket single malts", The Speyburn 10 year and the Glenfiddich Special Reserve. In Scotch 101 we get back to our look at scotch production with fermentation and distilling, and we've got some listener feedback as well.

On show #5 we'll be tasting The Balvenie 12 year Doublewood and The Talisker 10 year, and we are super excited to announce that we'll be joined by very special guest Tee Morris!

Michael Jackson: 27 March 1942 – 30 August 2007

Posted in News on September 1st, 2007

A legend in the world of beer and whisky has left us. Michael Jackson, who we regularly quote for our professional tasting notes, passed away Wednesday night at his home in London. He was 65. All of us at The Scotchcast are saddened by this news. His interest in whisky, along with the books and articles he has written, have done a great deal to make this podcast possible. We ask that you join us in raising a glass to the memory and accomplishments of Michael Jackson.

Beannachd Dia dhuit Mr. Jackson,

Jeff, Chip, and Michael
