WhiskyCast: Whisky 101 with Mark Gillespie – Special Edition Episode 85

Mark Gillespie from Whiskycast joins us to talk about whisky.

*Note: The Catholic Man Show always promotes drinking in moderation, which looks different for every individual. We do not promote or suggest drinking underage or drinking in excess.*


This is a special edition episode that was not broadcasted on the radio. Everything you know about The Catholic Man Show will change as we break the mold of the 3 things we do to bring you a Whisky 101 with Mark Gillespie.

Mark started WhiskyCast in 2005 as a passion that turned into his full time job. WhiskyCast features a broad spectrum of topics from tasting notes, whisky news reports, interviews with interesting whisky people from around the world, and on-location segments from whisky festivals and distilleries. Listen here.

In this episode, we ask Mark questions for people who may be interested in whisky, but don’t know where to start. Mark gives great insight on which drinking vessel he prefers, how to develop your palate, ice or no ice in whisky, and is blended scotch equal to single malt?




We thank Mark for his time and willingness to talk to us! You can follow Mark on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

    Learned about Mark and WhiskeyCast from you guys. I added the podcast and listened faithfully. Then started following Mark on social media. Was definitely part of my weekly routine. As a Whiskey newbie I really go a lot out of his craft.

    Then, he turned his social media feeds into a political rant forum. When it continued for weeks I jumped ship.

    I wish had just stuck to the Whiskey.

    Peace brothers thank you as always for all you do.
