Ah, K&L. We know the northern branch people. Would love to attend this but Tuesdays are always bad for me. :cry:

BTW, I have made my reservations for the HT tasting. :D Anybody else from LA going down to the OC? Any OC people?

I have to give the folks at Hi Time :thumbsup: :thumbsup: for the wonderful show they put together. Lots of surprising whiskies were sported for our perusal and we were well taken care of.

While some of the tables only had the standard fair available, other tables were very intriguing. Signet at the Glenmorangie table. Signature at the Balvenie table. A Tamdhu and Caol Ila from Duncan Taylor.

The really nice thing about starting early is even after waiting a few hours afterwards it still wasn't very late to set off for home. I also think the early start time helped as most had eaten a few hours ahead so palates were fairly clean at the start as well.
