    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!
