What was also highly noticeable was that in the recent issue of whisky magazine that there was a two page spread on the up coming Islay festival but no mention of Speyside. I love my peaty whiskies (hence the name) but come on give speyside its due! The best whisky in the world (according to whisky mag) is a speyside.
I look forward to whiskymags review of the festival.
Sorry rant over!
Yet, there is a 2 page run up to the Islay festival. Don't get me wrong, everyone likes different whiskies, but come on guys, give Speyside a break!!
If it weren't for Glenfiddich, then there wouldn't be nearly as much single malts available to us. Glenfiddich were the first to export and others followed suit.
Islay 7 ..........You do the maths
There are not 1, but 2 festivals in Speyside every year. The Spirit of Speyside festival in Spring and the Dufftown/Speyside festival in Autumn. Hopefully after omitting to review the spring festival, WM will see the error of their ways and review the Autumn festival!
..........i won't hold my breath!
Although there may not have been a WM stand or exhibition, Marcin was there representing the magazine. There is a review of the event coming in issue 40.

Don't be suprised susywong, WM rarely post replies in the forums (except for me). It's a kind of policy to allow our readers and other whisky lovers to just get on with it. There isn't the time to get into discussions with everyone on the forums.
Anyway, I hope you all enjoyed the festival and look forward to reading about in WM soon.
How will you manage to review the Islay festival if there are no chivas distilleries there!! or will you review one distillery and forget about the rest of the festival.
Lets hope there is a bit more variety in the Isaly review and personally I would have liked to see more information about Speyside festival.
