Whisky Gold

Watch this live WebTV show as we delve deep into the World of Whiskies…
Show date: Wednesday 25th November 2009 Show time: 15.00


Why does Scotch whisky taste as it does and where do the flavours come from? Is mature whisky always worth spending more on, and what is the best investment for the collector?

For those new to whisky, this show will cover everything you need to know – whether you should add water to your whisky, and the type of glass you should drink it from.

With Christmas nearly upon us, we may need to top-up the drinks cabinet before our friends and family join in the festivities. For many, whisky is the perfect way to warm up the festive season, making now the ideal time to brush up on your whisky knowledge before buying that special bottle.

Find out all you need to know and more by watching this live and interactive WebTV show with whisky expert and aficionado Charles MacLean.

Charles has spent almost thirty years researching, writing and lecturing about Scotch whisky. He was elected a Keeper of the Quaich, the industry's highest accolade, in 1992 for 'his services to Scotch’.

Charles will be tasting and analysing 5 different whiskies, ranging from an entry level Hakushu 12 year old malt Japanese whisky (retailing at £45) to a breathtaking 58 year old Dalmore Selene priced at £12,000 – one of only 30 decanters in the world. Also whetting Charles’ palette will be a slightly less expensive Dalmore Candela at £7,500.

Completing the tasting menu is a limited edition Hazlewood Reserve 17 year old single malt - one of only 500 bottles made, and an Aberfeldy 18 year old single cask – both of which are exclusive to World of Whiskies.

Whisky expert Charles MacLean joins us live online at www.webchats.tv/chat/whisky_gold on Wednesday 25th November 2009 at 1300 to educate, inform and inspire us about this array of marvellous malts.
