Episode 180,  Jan 14, 04:09 PM

This week!
We wrap up this two-part course on how to become a Whiskey Expert with Barry Laminack.

We walk through how to taste because Barry thinks Whiskey Notes are made up!
So I put him through the Gauntlet and teach him HOW to taste and of course we go off track for the rest of the episode.

A good time was had by all.

Waterford!
If you're familiar with the concept of Terroir in wine, you'll appreciate Mark Reynier's Waterford "Single Malt Whisky" from Ireland. Mark is combining his Scotch whisky and fine wine talents to produce an authentic series of Irish Single Malt Whiskies based on traditional wine industry principles. 

2021 Icons of Whisky - Brand innovator and Irish Distiller of the year - San Francisco World Spirits Competition Double Gold - one of 750com's Game Changers is proving that Waterford is indeed different.

How? Authenticity! The Terrior code on each bottle reveals the entire story of that whisky. Full disclosure, full traceability. 
100% pure Irish barley creates an intensity of flavor derived from exceptional steps in the distilling process. Waterford is gastronomic because it's honest.

  • Waterford's Single Farm Origin is one farm, one whisky. The collection reveals the Terroir of each farm and its unique flavor profile.  
  • Waterford's Arcadian series: Flavor through Agronomy - Organic Gaia and Biodynamic Luna - Single Malt Whiskies
  • Waterford's hyper-rare Cuvée series: Flavor through complexity, layering components from several farms
