The Whisky Topic is a weekly podcast hosted by Mark Bylok, author of The Whisky Cabinet, and Jamie Johnson, who runs private (but approachable!) bourbon club here in Toronto Canada.
Our annual podcast with Dr. Don Livermore, Master Blender of Hiram-Walker, takes us through the new Canadian whisky releases for 2020 and beyond. We discuss the barrel maturation process, the youthfulness of rye, and get caught-up on how much the whisky industry has changed during these times.
Will Schragis of Barrell Craft Spirits joins us to talk about the latest offerings from Barrell including their rye, bourbon, and their journey into other spirits!
David Jennings (Rare Bird 101) talks to us about his love of Wild Turkey Distillery, his upcoming book, and the best Wild Turkey stories. We breifly cover the history of the distillery, the brand, and the undeniable influence of Jimmy Russell.
