Blog, Photos

The line starts moving

The excitement builds

Let the sipping begin!

Ken was a cool guy, very knowledgeable. I want to visit his bar someday.

Wolfburn was in the building

Care for a taste? The choice is yours.

First time for me seeing a whiskey from New Mexico.

People were learning and networking

Talented people were in the building, showing and explaining their products

As a fan of Cognac, I wanted to try these but didn’t get around to it

Oh yes, bring it on!

Whisky straight out of the barrel!

Not sure what it is but it was too cool to pass up

Of course, well known brands were present as well.

A whisky and a smile goes a long way.

Scotch highball

Come one, come all!

Some tastes were free, for others a fee was charged

He actually played, I thought he was just walking around in character

Good to walk around with friends, especially when they offer you some snacks!

Haha, he cut the cheese… I thought, but it was ham.

I finally tasted the Darkness whisky. It was pretty good

Really good Don Papa

So much Scotch available at this event.

Let’s look around a bit

Some vintage Bourbon

Some cool glassware were part of the exhibition too. Expensive but pretty cool

A friend being interviewed for a local blog or TV production, not sure which…

Is he judging or taking inventory?

Glenmorangie is a highly favored Scotch

Virtual reality during the festival! I should have checked that out, huh

It’s cool to have a table to go have your burning questions about whisky answered
