WHISKYCAST EPISODE 393: OCTOBER 13, 2012

Italians are known for their wine, but one Italian firm helped pioneer the concept of single cask whiskies. Silvano Samaroli started bottling his own casks in 1968, and while his bottlings are hard to find, they’re well worth the extra effort. Samaroli’s Francesco Binetti explains the company’s unique philosophy in this week’s episode, and I’ll have tasting notes for some of the Samaroli whiskies. In the news, we’ll get updates on recent whisky auctions, George Dickel jumps on the Rye bandwagon, and the 2010 Water of Life Drive brings clean water to two Ethiopian villages!
