297 - Scotch for the Bourbon Drinker with Single Malt Savvy
There's a lot of whiskey out there and sometimes we get caught up in our bubble of bourbon. On this episode, I'm joined by Chris Perugini who does private tastings and boasts a lot of worldly whiskies on his instagram account @SingleMaltSavvy. He sent me a few blind samples and we discuss them to see what resonates with me as a bourbon drinker.
