The guy doing the spirits session actually talked about whisky vs whiskey but now I can't recall which was which.

I don't know which particular one it was, and I don't think the guy who brought it did either. He got it from a company that buys single casks out of the mfgr's, tests and samples them, and then sells them in numbered lots, which only the providence of "this is really good, trust us".
