Best Irish Whiskey Podcast

If you have even a passing interest in whiskey then this podcast is a must. Amazing guests from the industry, always informative. But the garden chats episodes, where people from outside the whiskey industry speak their mind on whatever their drinking, are fantastic. Great craic and no BS in whatever they’re saying.
