I received an email from Dr. Bill Lumsden yesterday that contained two important pieces of information.
1) He was very sorry that he would not be around for our visit to Glenmorangie this weekend.
2) He had finally opened that bottle of 2001 Lanessan I sold him last year and it was delicious.
I said that, since we won't see one another, we should talk on the phone instead. He said that sounded fine. I said we should record it, too. He said sure. I said we should do it right now. He said how about tomorrow? I said OK.
Listen as the man behind Glenmorangie and Ardbeg talks shop on the new Ealanta, upcoming releases for both distilleries, and the pressure of constantly trying to outdo last year's whisky.
