WhiskyFest New York 2009 recapNovember 12th, 2009
Okay, I’m back in the office after being out a week.
I had a great time Tuesday night at the sold-out WhiskyFest. It was nice to see some of you there.
Here’s some of the news-related items that I picked up at the event:
Park Ave Liquor in NYC got on a stash of some delicious Knockando 21 y/o single cask bottled way back in 1998!! I had a bottle at one time. Great stuff!
There’s going to be a New Glenlivet Cellar Collection 1973 vintage coming out next year in time for father’s day.
An Cnoc 12 and 16 coming to the US in a month or two. Also Balblair 1991 and 1997 vintage.
Glen Grant made its US debut at WhiskyFest with 10 and 16 year old expressions!
Chivas Royal Salute 38 y/o “Stone of Destiny” also debuted at WhiskyFest. Only 600 bottles for the US for the entire 2010 calendar year and priced at $600.
Look for a new 2009 vintage Jameson Rarest Special Reserve.
Glendronach Single Casks are going to start showing up at retailers’ shops who have the opportunity to buy a cask. I caught a glimpse of one at the Park Avenue Liquor booth.
I hope to post up more information here as I get more time over the next few days. For those of you who were in attendance, feel free to post up your thoughts on the event.
