When it comes to the world/thought/idea(s) behind modern whisky blending companies few, if any, are as well known or well regarded as our friends at Compass Box. No one in modern history has been able to capture the imagination around blended whisky in the way that John Glaser and team have done and continue to do.
Joshua and Jason have an in-depth conversation with both John & James (wait, that's like 4 J's there!!) regarding the art and passion behind blending whisky. The boys also discuss the rules the SWA (Scotch Whisky Association) have laid down (and how Compass Box and other are challenging some of these laws).
This was truly a fascinating conversation and we're over the moon that we can share it with you all.
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!
