Whisky's of the World Expo (WOW) March 28th 2009 - SF

Postby mikeymad » Sun Mar 15, 2009 12:08 am

Kind of a late announcement... But I got around to getting my ticket the other day (got 5 people going so far)....

http://www.celticmalts.com/events.asp


The 10th Annual Whiskies of the World Expo and Artisanal Spirits Fest will be held Saturday March 28, 2009 in San Francisco.

(I think that I missed one year)....

(info)
------------
Saturday Night: Tasting Extravaganza and Celtic Craic!!!:

Two huge decks filled with the world's great single malts, bourbons, Irish whiskey and more! All booths are staffed by knowledgeable brand ambassadors and/or master distillers. Unlimited tasting and education are the highlight of this festive evening.

A sumputuous dinner buffet, live Celtic music, a Pipe and Drum Concert AND Artisanal Mixology Seminars on the top deck, spirits lifestyle features and new and numerous booths of Celtic arts and wares, vintage barware and Scottish/Irish foods and the incredible atmosphere of the docked San Francisco Belle, add to the magic and excitement of the evening.

Our top deck allows us once again to host the Whisky and Cigar experiences.The Belle gives us enough room to stretch out and relax despite the large number of attendees at the show.

Take a break with your favorite dram as the sun sets over the Bay. Spectacular views, plenty of fresh air and seating and the romance of the sea add endlessly to an already great night.

-------------

I am working on getting a pour list....


Give a post or let me know if you are going... Maybe some additional tasting over the weekend for those in town.

Back from the show it was even smaller than last year... sad to say it may be the last one of the WOW's that I go to.... unless something really changes.

Did get to try a couple of things:

new Laphroaig 25yo... very good
Yamazaki 12yo whisky aged on Japanese Oak... (very rare) and haunting
Ferrand Ancestrale 70yo cognac

And always good to see my favorite group of whisky makers.
