Link - please!
And it seems from the whisky fair that I didn't have a monopoly on leather hats I was probably the only person to come with two, though...

my fave was probably the Glenfiddich Solera straight from the Solera Vat. It was rich, complex, sweet, rummy, creamy and full.
I believe that the whisky you bottle yourself from a cask (e.g. from a hose) in the distillery shop, is the cask strength Solera Vat. Brilliant stuff. I filled one bottle at the autumn 2006 festival, and another one this time. I didn't taste it during the festival, so my favourite whisky this time was the Aberlour Warehouse no. 1 Bourbon Cask. Link to some pictures below. Some of the posters in this thread are caught indulging there.

If had known which one you were I definitely would have. I had intentions to meet you and C_I at the Macallan Box in Elgin the night before but I got a bit carried away at the Whisky Fair in Dufftown Sunday.
Btw, I'll upload some of my festival pics when I finally get home from my travels (May 24th).

A vertical tasting would be good. Caol Ila, Benriach or Aberlour would be interesting.
How about whisky and cheese again? That always goes well.
The usual indie bottlers, of course, and would Speyside distillers/Scott's selection do a tasting? They did one about 3 years ago and May was the first I've seen of them in Dufftown since.
Steve mentioned a tour of An Cnoc/Knockdhu distillery. If that was in the morning, I'd go and it would probably sell out quick.
Also - and you'll never get agreement to do it - I'd love to do a vertical tasting of Kininvie.

How about next May?

I'll just do a long weekend. Neither my liver nor my wallet can keep going for ten days.
I was a runner up and had a choice of three bottles, and I went for the Spirit of Speyside Blended Malt 2008. Only 21 full sized bottles exist - anywhere in the world. It's not going to be the most sought after bottle there's ever been, but I'm thrilled to bits to be getting one.
Sorry if I seem to be boasting
