Whisky Fest is scheduled for 9 November at the Marriott Marquis in New York City...now's the time to start making plans if you're thinking of coming.
Might be fun to get some of the people who frequent this forum together in one place...at least those of us who can't make it to Scotland!

They also let you taste an unlimited number of whiskies for a single price (none of this book-of-tickets nonsense). My only complaint was that it was very, very crowded. People were packed three deep around the tables in in the early part fo the evening. Still, it had a good range (including a large number of Bourbons).
i think they decreased ticket sales by 10%. i will be there also, cant pass it up. maybe i will run into you guys. one thing that is annoying is the fact that there arent nearly enough tables for eating, but hopefully that will be different this year.
It looks like there should be an even better selection this year, especially with the inclusion of certain distilleries (e.g., Springbank) who were not there last year. The website also mentions that there will be surprises from Bruichladdich, which makes me wonder if they're going to have their Rocks, Infinity or other unusual expressions.

I noticed that last year as well...I plan on eating a healthy dinner beforehand so that I don't rely on grazing at the buffet tables. That was my biggest mistake of the night last year...
