WhiskyFest Prep Notes

The Malt Advocate’s WhiskyFest touches down Friday Oct. 10 in San Francisco. Dramfun – my supposed blogger in crime – and I are ready with VIP passes and charity tickets to sample some of the special bottles from The Macallan, The Glenlivet and Glenfarclas. These run $20 per ticket so we won’t get to all of them, unfortunately.

I’m really looking forward to this. I’ve been three times to Whiskies of the World in SF, and that show seemed to be getting a bit repetitive, with no-shows from some of the major distilleries. This one promises to have 200 different Scotch whiskies represented, and as VIPs we will get a chance to sample some very old ones:

Glenfarclas 35 yr.

Glen Spey 30 yr.

Strathmill 31 yr.

Stronachie 31 yr.

Among the highlights promises to be a seminar with Lincoln Henderson on Suntory’s Yamakazi whiskies. We’ll be weighing in with a show review and tasting notes as best as we can manage.
