Impressive list of Master Blenders and Distillers slated for WhiskyFest New York
I’m back from vacation, and getting caught up with my work. I’ve been putting together the list of master distillers and blenders participating in our seminars as panel members at WhiskyFest New York on October 27th, and it’s impressive.

Dr. Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie & Ardbeg
Jim McEwan, Bruichladdich
Richard Paterson, Dalmore, etc.
Matthew Crow, Johnnie Walker
Barry Crockett, Midleton Distillery
Colum Egan, Bushmills
“To be determined”, Cooley Distillery
From the U.S.
Truman Cox, A. Smith Bowman
Parker Beam, Heaven Hill
Chris Morris, Brown-Forman
Harlan Wheatley, Buffalo Trace
David Perkins, High West
In addition, we will have our main Whisky Advocate writers and whisky reviewers on hand, moderating the seminars:

We’re still lining up the whiskies for the event, but I can assure you that there will be some very special whiskies poured (e.g. Glenmorangie 1963 Vintage and Brora 30 year old!), and several whiskeys that will make their U.S. debut (e.g. Midleton Barry Crockett Legacy, and Barry himself will taste us on it).
We hope to have the complete agenda finalized by the end of March. Stay tuned.
