    Neil, will be there with bells on mate.... Fred will be sick of the sight of me by then! If you have any time in the morning Fred will be coming to the Meadowbrook Hotel from about 10am-11am and I will be serving my famous bourbon chicken wings for as long as 10kg last!

    So how did the Expo go?

    Guys, we definately had an awesome day with Fred! i was fortunate enough to be at all 3 events on Tuesday - a bottle signing at the Meadowbrook Hotel (Scott: aka Hightower's work), an industry training afternoon at Iceworks and the Whiskey Expo in the evening.
    Fred was typically Fred - one of the most amazing, friendly, generous and funny-as-all-hell guys in the industry. He never fails to amaze me at how much he gives to the people he meets.
    We got to taste some of the great Beam Small Batch products, as well as some Jim Beam White Label White Dog specially shipped in for the series of tastings and training events Fred is doing in Australia. Late in the afternoon, a small group of 6 of us sat with Fred and got to open a few 'special' Beam bottles not available in Australia. Scott was nice enough to open and share his bottles of Jim Beam Signature - Six Grain (UK Duty Free only), Binnys Barrel Select Knob Creek Single Barrel and Red Stag. I'm going to rock the boat here and say I liked the Red Stag more than the other two.... It really appealed to my sweet tooth and reminded me of a fortified wine product more than a whiskey one.
    Here's a few pictures - thanks to Ian from CCA. Hopefully Scott will post some more at some stage.
    A special thanks to Jared as well for hosting the events we attended.

    Started last night with some Nelson County (aka Heaven Hill) and finished with a nice pour of VOB 80 proof.
