I thinking i will be missing. The venue to me wasn't that great last year and the price hike means it may be the final nail.

Bit disappointed by the new ticket price, times are hard and it was almost out of our budget. We'll cut back on something else, food, elec or water
Hope to see some of you there and now we've finally joined the forum you may see us around here more.

The mood on Friday night was very different to the Saturdays that I'm used to, far more relaxed and easy going, the food was good and much needed. I did try a couple of cocktails but they are not really me, but fun to try them. There was an excellent range of exhibiters, who, I thought, had brought more expressions with them than previous years, with some first class drams on offer. Everybody that I spoke to was very passionate about their product and that rubbed off on me.
Saturday was great fun, I enjoyed the VIP treatment and the food was excellent, I never did get to the VIP lounge, I preferred to go outside every now and then to get a breath of fresh air. I was good to meet up with lots of old friends and make some new ones.
Overall, given the quality of the whisky available, it was a great day (or two) out and worth the money. I shall endeavour to do the same again next year (maybe leaving out the cocktails).
