Very good dcrossan. should not be disappointed based on last years show. Once we get more of a list of people together we will have to see about additional gatherings and 'tasting' sessions...
Current and past Master Distillers and Managing Directors will each create one unique bottle of Macallan. The contents inside each bottling will be offered one dram at a time to lucky attendees who provide a donation to charity.

Final Rare Whiskies Line-up for WhiskyFest San Francisco
July 25th, 2008
Here's the final list of rare whiskies being poured for charity at WhiskyFest San Francisco on October 10th, 2008. Attendees at WhiskyFest will have the opportunity to sample these whiskies for a small charitable donation.
Glenfarclas "Family Cask" Vintages:
The Glenlivet Cellar Collection:
Unique, individual, bottles (bottles 1 of 1) of Macallan created by current and retired Macallan Master Distillers and Managing Directors, listed below.
Bob Dalgarno (current Master Distiller)
Frank Newlands (retired Master Distiller)
Sandy Curle (retired Master Distiller)
Willie Phillips (retired Managing Director)
This will be a very special evening. And given this is only our second WhiskyFest in San Francisco, we don't expect the crowd to be as big as our two other events in New York and Chicago. So, if you can only go to one whisky festival in the U.S. this year, this is the one to go to.
It is our goal to offer similar rare, special whiskies-all for charity-at future WhiskyFests, so stay tuned.

I didn't get to meet up with bcrossan, but I know he had a tight schedule. Actually, we could have bumped into each other without knowing it...lol.
I also met Robin Quivers from the Howard Stern Show. She was very nice, and very accomodating to let us take a picture with her.
Jimmy Russell provided some great conversation and insight into his beginnings with Wild Turkey. It was an honor to meet a man that has been in the business for 55 years, and still going.
Great fun all around!
