I'm sorry that I'll miss this one. If you love whisk(e)y you'll want to attend. Jon Hansell and his wife Amy do a really good job and attract a lot of great products. Here's a link to the SF event.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.

quite true, finest i've had... but if youre strapped for cash... check out Redbreast... its also made by Jamison Distilleries, but its only $40 compared to $150, and its almost as drinkable as the midleton.... thats the great thing about the whiskey fest... you learn about different products, thats where i found redbreast, and now its my house whiskey.

essential, have you paid attention to the events throughout the week leading up to the Fest? There's got to be 15 or more hosted events - Wonder who'll be left still standing for the event Friday!

Well then I'll keep my eyes out for the gents in wheelchairs. I thought last year's event was extremely impressive... but it was on a Thursday night (if I remember correctly). Plus we started out at a large Southern W&S function that was hosted earlier that evening. Definitely think Friday over the holiday was a good mood. I believe it will also be fleet week this year.
