Last year, Bill and I stormed the WhiskyFest weekend, and all sorts of craziness ensued, including the dawning of Billy Glencairnhands™. This year, it will be on a Wednesday night, not spread out over a weekend--and my liver is thanking the gods as I type this.
I will be flying solo this time around, but just look for the Grouchos and say hey if you see me there.
WhiskyFest is put on by the good people behind Whisky Advocate (and the guy in the pic to the right is the magazine's Editor, John Hansell). Now, if this picture doesn't capture all the fun you thought would expect from the vaunted WhiskyFest event , then you might want to try the one below.
If you're not already a ticketed passenger, regular tickets are still available. You can find them here:
If you're kicking yourself for having missed both the Early Bird pricing and the VIP tickets now that they have sold out, you may just be in luck: Stephen has one VIP ticket he's looking to sell for exactly what he paid for it, and nothing more and nothing less ($274).

The event is the biggest and the baddest of the whisky festivals you'll come across. If you're around and can swing it, it's well worth experiencing.
Hope to see you there.
