Had a great day! Will be back next year!
Based on earlier reviews, I expected a festival with overpriced drams. It was not like that at all. Despite the entrance price (30€ In pre-sale, 40€ at the door) being too steep (I received a Glencairn glass, a whisky bottle cork and small notebook with pencil in return), the drams at the festival were very reasonably priced and the atmosphere was absolutely wonderful. They made the best of the (luxuriously looking) location (casino) and it really shows that a lot of effort was put into this. Overall this was a great festival experience for me, also because I joined a VIP Highland Park tasting featuring the 25y, 30y and 40y OB’s hosted by Martin Markvardsen himself. This VIP tasting was fairly priced (3x3cl for 80€) but unfortunately too short (only a 20 minutes window of time for 3 top drams is definitely too short/rushed in order to enjoy the subtleties of these premium malts!). Conclusion: A good festival but there’s still some room for improvement (lower entrance fee, longer VIP/masterclass tastings). Instead of 6 VIP tasting sessions for 4 persons each lasting no longer than 15-20 minutes, they should opt for 1 or 2 sessions with more participants and lasting longer.
