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.
