Guest Appearance: WhiskyCast Virtual Tastings

Filed under: Announcements,Cocktails and Spirits,Podcast Appearances — Shelly Brisbin @ 8:05 AM

I experienced my first proper whisky tasting at Tales of the Cocktail in 2008. As I recall, the tasting mat featured six Maccallans, and they were excellent. Two other very important points: F. Paul Pacult of The Spirit Journal fame led the tasting, and it took place at 10 AM. That’s what I call a baptism by fire.

This year’s Tales of the Cocktail is happening right now, and I wish I could be there! Twitter makes it both super fun, and utter misery to miss out, since so many people I follow are lighting up the ‘tubes with their experience.

But my week has not been entirely spirit-free. On Sunday, I had the great pleasure of being a panelist on Mark Gillespie’s excellent WhiskyCast Virtual Tastings podcast. I appeared on the first (beta) edition of the show, and I was honored that Mark was kind enough to have me back.

I’ll leave it to you to listen to the show, but I will say that the panel was full of Texans, and at least one whisky we tried is a lone star product.
