October 2007 - Taliskers (Musky hosted event)
November 2007 - Glenlivet with special guest Ian Logan
December 2007 - Laphroaig
February 2008 - Highland Park
March 2008 - Balvenie
Actually there was one earlier one (September 2007?) that I hosted and participated in...alone. I had sent out PMs but only gave a couple of hours notice so sat staring at the screen myself, keyboarding and drinking. Pretty much what normally seems to happen when I'm left to my own devices. After that Chrisitan and I drummed up a longer lead time and it worked.
I should like to give credit to the Irish whisky group for the initial idea of live tastings as it was first proposed on one of the threads but wasn't followed up until we "took the Bull by the horns". Ganga has now taken up the cause and I have nothing but praise for he, Mikey and Matt for how the tastings have proceeded.
