Had an excellent time at the 2018 Gathering!! From the Friday dinner and bottle share afterwards. Saturday was a great day followed by a very relaxed Sunday event. Can not wait until next year! Regards to the organizers and volunteers who put on another great weekend! Regards also to the exhibitors who offered up some amazing bottles to taste!
Whiskybase Gathering 2018 – another great weekend with friends, quality time and a truly amazing selection of malts has passed. I must thank the organizers for their tremendous efforts to quickly turn this event into one of Europe’s best and most important whisky festivals!
Two days instead of one day, more international visitors than ever, and a range of whiskies that can’t be found anywhere else: it’s hard not to give top scores all around. As many reviewers have pointed out, it was a bit too crowded on Saturday, and maybe a bit too quiet on Sunday. The second day gave more time and room to chat with friends and explore all the whiskies being offered, which I really enjoyed.
The dinner on Friday was a great prelude to kick off the weekend, with an unexpected but nevertheless superb selection of whiskies and delicious food. I would have preferred a smaller group for the BYOB event afterwards, as it became a bit too noisy and crowded.
Compared to Whiskybase Gathering 2017, I am giving 1 extra point for value (2 days) and knocking off 1 point for atmosphere (Saturday). For the rest, I am referring to my more detailed review below.
A fantastic event, the best whisky festival I know, and I will certainly be back in 2019!
The best whisky festival I know.
Flew back from China to visit the Whiskybase Gathering both days, Saturday was too crowded, Sunday too silent. So please limit the tickets for Saturday next year, so people will move to Sunday.
Excellent choice of whiskies. For me it was Whisky Paradise (not by the dahboard light mmm). To many whiskies from the closed distilleries. Met a lot of old friends and made new friends as well. Next year I certainly will go again!
I was there both days and preferred the Sunday as the Saturday was a little crammed. The selection was excellent as was the ambience and all stall holders where helpful.
I would certainly like to go again, prices to suit everyone which was nice to see.
Excellent festival with an amazing ambiance.
Very relaxt because of the lesser number of visitors on Sunday.
Does it get any better than this? Top marks all around. Obviously I haven't visited all the whisky festivals in the world, but I have a sneaky suspicion this might be one of the best there is.
