I challenged Whyte & Mackay Master Blender Richard Paterson (http://www.bourbonblog.com/blog/2010/08/04/master-blender-richard-paterson-and-the-dalmore-at-tales-of-the-cocktail/), to see who could hold The Dalmore (http://www.bourbonblog.com/blog/2010/08/04/master-blender-richard-paterson-and-the-dalmore-at-tales-of-the-cocktail/) Single Malt Scotch in his mouth the longest.

Richard was awesome, so passionate about whiskey and some of the best Scotch I ever drank. By the way, The Dalmore King Alexander III we tasted in this video is 20 years old and is finished in used Knob Creek barrels among Marsala, Port, Cabernet Sauvingon, Madeira, and American White Oak

Thanks for your all's kind words. It was good timing interviewing Master Blender Richard Paterson as this was filmed at Tales of the Cocktail (http://www.bourbonblog.com/category/tales-of-the-cocktail/), just before all the news surrounding Sir Ernest Shackleton's Whiskey frozen under the Antarctic became headlines. Richard is hopeful that he will be able to recreate the original whisky once he samples it.

Check out the blog on it on http://whiskythaw.canterburymuseum.com/ and more from Richard the story here - http://www.themasterblender.com/shackleton-south-pole-whisky/
