Whisky Round Table – Volume 1, Episode 7

It’s hard to believe it’s December already (and Chanukah at that!!).

Well, it is what it is and here we are at another month into the Whisky Round Table meetings.

We twelve noble, brave, smart and horribly modest knights get together on a monthly basis to discuss all things whisky.

This very apropos December question was raised by Neil and Joel of Caskstrength.net:

“The festive season sees the big players in the spirits business heavily discounting some of our favourite whiskies in the supermarket chains with a view to entice the ‘once a year’ buyer and to grab some healthy market share. But does it de-value the product? Or do you think by discounting decent malts, it allows those with a curiosity to develop their palates further, albeit at a discounted rate??”
