Good afternoon gentlemen!
With WhiskyFest Chicago right around the corner, I was wondering if any of you had some good advice for a newbie? It'll be my first MA event and I'm pretty friggin' stoked!
So far, I've printed out the whisky list and am combing through it trying to formulate a game plan. I have a VIP ticket and it's my understanding that the VIP choices are only available for the first hour. Therefore, I'm creating a "ranking list" of the VIP-only whiskies that I wish to try. I'm trying to start with the light, floral Speysiders first and leave the heavy hitting Bourbons and Islays last. Is this a good idea?
Also, Tom and I will be attending the Binny's event the night before. Anything else outside of WhiskyFest I should look into? Tom mentioned an Ardbeg event the following day. Still looking for details on that.
So what can I expect when I get there? A mob scene? A mad scramble that will make Black Friday jealous? Lol
As always, any help and advice would be great! And try to keep the snarky "forget about the darkside and head straight for the bourbon" advice to a minimum. :-D :-D :-D
