    Whisky Unscripted Episode 4

    The 2 Gordons return and focus on one of the oldest relationships in whisky, Scotch and Irish. John Cashman is a fountain of knowledge on Irish whiskey, but is it always spelt with an ‘e’ in Ireland or is that in the USA? John has also represented Scotch whisky too so can bring a unique insight into what makes them similar, but different.We reach the letter D in A to Z’s, do a bit of whisky 'myth-busting' and discover the importance of the year 1494. The usual banter and whisky chat enjoyed best with a dram..enjoy!
