Starting in 2017, the WhiskyFair Takao is steadily growing and will soon host its third show in 2019.
An event primarily for whisky enthusiasts and connoisseurs who have a love and devotion for independent bottlings and old & rare whiskies. A huge selection of whisky awaits, you need at least two days to see everything on offer. But regardless of when you go and what you drink you know you still somehow missed an amazing bottle on offer. No free sampling allowed, all samples are to be paid with tokens. Many booths also offer you the option of a 20ml takeaway which will save you having to down a sample of 40year old Bowmore on the spot.
The event is a very basic setup, IBM tables with white cloths thrown over. Quite loud and disorganised but what would you expect from a show with such great whiskies.
If you are attending the WhiskyFair Takao, be sure to bring plenty of spare change, you will easily spend a small fortune on the fantastic drams available to try.
