Whisky Fair Limburg

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

The Whisky Fair LimburgI’m off to the Whisky Fair this weekend. This is one of the highlights of the European whisky festival season, and it’s the first time I’m going.

The Whisky Fair is unique for its combination of new releases and old rarities. Germany is an important whisky market so every distiller or bottler is present. Moreover there’s an array of related events around town, like the barbecue in Villa Konthor.

I can only stay for the day, so I’ll post some highlights on Sunday.

  • Tabrulavubeg: I've tried the 18yo Single Cask yesterday. It's really quite good, but from Ruben's conclusion "an exquisite version of this already really good dram"
  • Johan Andersson: Yes this cask is really fantastic. If you did the Cadenhead Warehouse tasting with Grant MacPherson in Campbeltown 2013 and until Open Day in May 2014
