From mulling wine to whisk(e)y wisdom Steph & Val offer up some fun information on hot mug classics. We also touch on basic types of whiskies. Or is it whiskeys? Both are correct, as you’ll see. So get ready to snuggle up, wrap your hands around a big ol’ mug of happiness, and join us for another tasty episode as we give you the 411 on warm cocktails and favored fortifications.

*Note: we talked about blended Scotch Whisky also being called “vatted” whisky; you won’t see that word on bottles after 2011. Also, the answer to "white whiskey" is that while American whiskey does have an oak requirement, there is no minimum time for aging, so the whiskey could have been put in overnight! The white dog whiskeys are normally corn whiskeys and they are not required to be stored in oak. So the answer is both yes & no as to whether white whiskeys are actually "whiskey."
