The show, I believe, was tremendous! For my first show, I was more than satisfied with all of the exhibitors and whiskies, especially the Glenrothes 1979. I had a great opportunity to pair some food with different beverages, and the people at the tables were more than conversational.
I spent a great deal of time at the Laphroaig, JW and Ardbeg booths, much to the chagrin, I'm sure, of the sober guys pouring. I believe it was Simon Brooking (memory a bit hazy) that was a great host at the table, and the guy at JW knew his stuff to no end. The Ardbeg guys were hired hands, but I must commend the main guy for putting up with me. Great lad!
I did find out that I should have poured more whisky into the pour buckets because I got entirely too drunk for my own good. I began to ramble on when talking to people, and I have learned from this show to be a little more aware of finishing the samples.
I had to help "coax" a bad drunk from behind the Johnnie Walker and Bulleit tables since he wasn't getting the message from one of the Bulleit ladies. I later found out he was escorted off of the boat, and I believe he was going behind the table to get some JWBlue.
I am extrememly satisfied with my experience at the show, and the four friends that accompanied me were also glad they went.
Thanks Ms. Walsh for an unforgettable night.
