125: “Lignin, the most unappreciated flavour molecule in the world.” - Dr. Don Livermore


Mark Bylok interviews Dr. Don Livermore, Master Blender of Hiram-Walker Distillery. We introduce the Northern Border Collection Rare Release of 2018, including Lot No. 40 Cask Strength, Gooderham & Worts Eleven Souls, J.P. Wiser’s 35, and Pikes Creek 21 Year Old! We geek out over the Canadian flavour wheel, and how Dr. Don is using the flavour wheel to tailor blends of whisky.
