What did you think?
This was my first proper whisky event and I thought it was brilliant. Two days were simply not enough and I still have too many unused sample tickets left. (I had more than my fill though, make no mistake!!)
I found the masterclasses a great way to learn more about the industry and the whisky and how to appreciate it more. They revealled so much more and various things I have picked up over the past few months/years have now fallen into place.
I wondered if two six hour days would be too much - but it could have gone on all week.
I Met some wonderful people and was priviledged enough to taste some one off whsikies never to be tasted again. Hopefully I had enough experience to fully appreciate them.
Roll on 2006!!
We saw many familiar faces from last year, both exhibitors & patrons, & spoke to many great people.
And of course sampled many great whiskies!
Areas for improvement?
Well, we spoke to a few people who did not receive a goody bag, despite paying for a ticket - glad I wasn't one of them.
Personally I was sorry that the Classic Malts weren't there this year (Diageo?).
And most of the exhibitors that were there seemed to have been there last year as well - any new faces next year?
These are just minor, apart from the goodie bag issue which left some folks unhappy.
But I'm just glad that Whisky Live came back - and seems to have attracted a shedload more younger folk like myself this year - good news for those in the industry.
After winning a bottle of Auchentoshan myself last year, good to see my wife carrying on the tradition by "winning" a bottle of Jura this year!
Haste ye back Whisky Live!
Now updated the Whisky Live website with lots of photos and info about the event.
