It's not often that The Glenlivet introduces a new single malt, but that's what's happening this week! We'll get an update from The Glenlivet's Andy Nash on the new 16-year-old Nadurra, the first cask-strength bottling available to most whisky drinkers. In the news, Robbo lands at Whyte and MacKay, Diageo releases another entry-level single malt for the duty-free market, and on the festival front...there will be one in Louisiana this October, but will there be two in Toronto? Also, it's time for you to become a part of WhiskyCast...all you need to do is record a whisky joke or drinking song, and you could be featured in an upcoming episode!

Last year, 250,000 people visited the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre on Edinburgh's Royal Mile. The tour includes a free dram of Scotch, and that's a lot of drams to pour! We'll hear more about the Centre from its founder and managing director, Alastair McIntosh. In the news, Dave "Robbo" Robertson leaves Jon, Mark, and Robbo's -- and perhaps Edrington Group -- for parts unknown (perhaps Whyte & MacKay?), there's a new vintage from The Glenrothes, Maker's Mark is shutting down the stills for summer maintenance, and more whisky events to plan your next vacation around...
