Season 2, Ep 5 - Catching up, checking emails, and delivering fun news

Sometimes you get so caught up in work and in life that you forget how long it's been since you've had a nice talk with your best friend. Today, Joshua and Jason sit down to catch up a bit and have a wee whisky talk. The hosts also read some emails and deliver some fun news to you, the listener.

So, as usual, have a seat, have a pour, and listen in. Unless you're driving. If you're driving, be smart and stay sober but be sure to listen into the conversation!

Season 2, Ep 4 - Our first live Podcast featuring Westland, Odin Brewing, Black Raven Brewing, and Betz Family Winery

Seriously, it doesn't get much geekier than this. Listen in as Joshua and Jason discuss the art and science behind fermenting/brewing, distilling, wine making, casks, the importance of water, beer terroir, and hyper terroir as it pertains to grapes, peat, water, oak, and also, barley. And to think, all of this was done in front of a live audience at Westland distillery!

Season 2, Ep 2 - David Stirk of Exclusive Malts returns!

Season 2, Episode 2... perhaps our whisky-geekiest episode yet! Joshua and Jason sat down for a little over an hour with David Stirk to talk about (the evils of) caramel coloring, selecting casks, the potential for a whisky bust, and even a few good dick jokes. Stirk also goes into detail as to how casks get into the blending and brokering system. Laughter and geeky conversation was had. We trust you'll enjoy this conversation as much as Joshua and Jason did.

Season 2, Ep 1 - Graham Coull & Iain Allan present the wonders of Glen Moray

One last "from the roadside of Scotland" podcast for you which, we feel, is the perfect way to start Season 2 of One Nation Under Whisky. On our Season 2 opener we welcome Graham Coull, Distillery Manager, and Iain Allan, Visitor Centre manager, of the wonderful Glen Moray distillery. Among a good many things discussed, Graham talks about how growing sales can and do affect your warehousing space (and how to account for that), and Iain talks to us a bit about why Glen Moray is so damn good matured in ex-port casks. The misconceptions part at the end will give you a good chuckle, too.

So, as usual, have a seat, have a pour, and listen in. Unless you're driving. If you're driving, be smart and stay sober but be sure to listen into the conversation!

Ep. 27 Mailbag answers and the final episode of season 1

Joshua and Jason put forth a challenge to you, the listener(s). They asked "please send in a question for a future episode and we'll see what we can do about answering said question". You, dear listener(s), rose to the challenge in a most wonderful way. You've peppered the boys with more questions than they ever expected. So many, in fact, that not all could be covered in under 2 hours. Heck, not all would have been covered in 4 hours. Still, we hope you enjoy this, our longest episode to date, at 2hrs and 10min. Thanks for being devoted listeners!

So, as usual, have a seat, have a pour, and listen in. Unless you're driving. If you're driving, be smart and stay sober but be sure to listen into the conversation!

Ep. 26 Driving to Campbeltown to select a cask with Iain McAlister of Glen Scotia

When driving 'round Scotland on your way to Campbeltown what would you do to pass the time? Why, record a podcast that's what! And if that weren't enough fun, you can do what Joshua and Jason did and stop at Glen Scotia distillery to have a chat and cask selection with their wonderful distillery manager, Iain McAlister. Amazing management, fermenting, distilling, and cask maturation skills aside, Iain is one of the finer gents you'll ever meet and the boys had a great time getting geeky with him.

Ep. 25 Zack Pilgrim of Balcones and ‘murrican single malt

How better to get an insight into Balcones single malt whisky than to talk to one of the distillery's own distillers: Zack Pilgrim? During 2017's Whisky Jewbilee week in Chicago, Joshua spoke with Zack at an American Single Malt Commission event at Warehouse Liquors about Balcones, their processes, and whiskies. Insight was gathered and is now shared. During this episode, you'll also get to hear Joshua and Jason talk about the potential future of the definition of American Single Malt. The conversation is full of wonderful assumptions and conjecture!

So, as usual, have a seat, have a pour, and listen in. Unless you're driving. If you're driving, be smart and stay sober but be sure to listen into the conversation!

Ep. 24 Two Thousand Seventeen — a year in review

You know the Joshua and Jason like to "back it up" a little bit, right? What better way to kick off the new year than to look back at the highlights of the previous year? Listen in as the boys discuss their favorite podcasting moments of 2017. Add to this, the boys will take you through the cask selection process for two new whiskies set be to released in early 2018. And if that weren't enough, Joshua and Jason share with you their favorite whiskies tasted in 2017.
