(a) The responses & opinions of the three posts above (thanks guys, appreciate your thoughts tremendously), and
(b) The fact that I emailed the organiser who first contacted me in order to obtain some more info and details for the event, (I asked some pretty specific questions) and he's not responded. I noted in the first thread on this that several people tried contacting the Edinburgh organisers and also did not get responses.
The event was poorly organised, it has to be said. Suntory, Glenrothes, Highlad Park, Jura and Bruichladdich did have knowledgable people there but everyone else was just a student who had been roped in.
It was also annoying trying to get information about the event.
Of the music, the ceildih band and the bagpiper were annoying but the harp player was excellent - especially if you are a tubular bells fan.
That said, it was cheap and I particularly enjoyed the suntory and MMcD/Laddie whiskies and MMcD were generous with their measures.
It was a good night out and, if it's not too far away and not too expensive, I recommend you go as there were plenty of good whiskies available.
