Episode one - Introduction
This is a short introduction episode, it generally sets out my intentions with the podcast and serves as a test broadcast.
Episode two – How to taste whisky
In this episode I taste Teachers Highland cream. I wanted to start with an easy to find whisky and make the points that it doesn’t have to be single malt or expensive and that a good tasting system will help get more from your dram.
Episode three – 3 elements
This episode was recorded mainly on location and introduces 3 elements that I feel are important to keep in mind – the smells and textures of soil, air and water.
Episode four – Tullibardine/the lone knight
This is the first story based episode and features a story written by my daughter Faith. The story relates to the character of Tullibardine whisky. Details of the distillery are also looked at. http://www.tullibatdine.com
Episode five – A selection from the collection
In an attempt to introduce myself I go through some of the whiskies I have in my own selection, these vary in style, nationality and cost.
Episode six – Labels and Chatsworth
Whisky labels can be difficult to read but can be a big help in understanding what you have in front of you. Also – on a visit to Chatsworth House I meet and interview Peter MacKay from http://www.scottish-liqueur-centre.com
