A Scot talks about scotch

What’s more meta than a Scot talking about Scotch? Christopher Phin, editor of Tap! magazine (dedicated to iPhone and iPad, published in the UK by Future) and friend of The Loop has launched his first independent podcast, entitled, simply, Scotch.

Phin notes up front that he’s not an expert on whiskey, but he really, really loves it. In the first episode, Phin takes on the Yamazaki 12 year, a Japanese single malt. He also explains the difference between spellings of whiskey (whiskey vs. whisky).

I can’t speak to the Yamazaki, but Phin’s Scottish accent is pale and peaty with a soft body, grassy palate and smooth finish.
