We'll toast St. Patrick in Dublin and have a dram in Denver and we'll find out what makes Scotch a single, Tennessee whiskey straight and Canadians great mixers. Whether you call it moonshine, bourbon or even the water of life, it's a real liquid asset. Now, the untold story of Whiskey, on Modern Marvels.
