I ended up going, too. It was a blast! Gov, did you go to any of the seminars? I only went to the Glenfiddich one. It was fascinating.

No, I didn't, but I intended too. My problem was I could not stop sampling the booze :lol: Also, How about that prime rib!! :shock: It was fantastic! The whole thing was very nice. My buddies and I were saying that we are going to make it an annual event from now on.

Likewise! I didn't have any of the food...ate a big dinner beforehand. :)

What was the best thing you tasted? For me, it was the Balvenie 21yo, hands down. I'd never had that before. The Greenore 8yo deserves special mention, as well...and Binny's has it now! I wasn't intending to buy anything when I went there on Saturday, but I bought a bottle of that as soon as I saw it.

I did not try those two, but I liked The Arran 10 yr old, Ardmore Traditional Cask, The Macallan CS, Penderyn, Redbreast 12. Not having many bourbon's before, I really liked WT 101, Rare Breed, and Russell's Reserve.
