    The Biggest of em all in the Netherlands. It is a busy event but i think it is still reasonable since it is being held in a big location with plenty of room. Everything you need will be there. Beginners to coinnosseurs, everybody is happy. I don’t think that the ‘event store’ has an added value and somehow i think they should protect their guests of doing ‘drunk’ investments. I must say since i have free acces as an iws member i don’t mind paying a little extra for my drams but i could understand it if guests who had to pay quite an amount for entrance, think different about this. There is not to much free anymore other that the real basic stuff.

    November 18th 2018 was the first time I visited the IWF in Den Haag. At the IWF  I could exactly  find and taste the whiskies I am currently aiming for. In terms of quality and price. I would say it is the Pot Still+ festival. 


    Nice ambiance in this church. Crowded: yes, but I could get a dram everywhere and conversations with exhibitors at Cadenhead, Loch Lomond Group, Maltstock and Kintra (Erik Molenaar) was no problem. 

    And yes, for some whiskies you had to pay additional drams, but I considered it to be fair. I spend 20 Euro on drams which was not too bad. 

    I will be back next year for sure.

    Nice atmosphere. Stands all around the church. Some nice whiskies and food on offer at reasonable prices.

    Water and bread are freely available and there are some nices places to sit and make some notes.

    Bit disappointed as stands like Bruichladdich had only two drams on offer. Was looking forward to the recent Port Charlotte MRC..but ah...lots of other great whiskies to be tasted.

    Nice festival, but too crowdy. Try the VIP at Friday afternoon, it's worth it.

    Goede sfeer. Meesterlijke locatie. Ga altijd op de VIP middag, vrijdag, om de druk te te vermijden. Leuke standhouders. Weinig Islay vertegenwoordiging, echter dat lijkt sowieso een trend te zijn de laatste jaren. 

    Jammer dat je voor de toiletten moet betalen, dit moet gewoon inbegrepen zijn.

    groots opgezet  voldoende keus ,    maar voor bijna alles bijbetalen na een forse entree prijs. zelfs voor  de toiletten moet er betaald worden. 

    ik denk dat we volgend jaar maar overslaan
