04/27 - Whiskyfair in Limburg

Whiskyfair in Limburg, a must go for every whisky enthusiast!

This year's my tenth visit after I made a break when we moved to Switzerland a few years back. Every year I think "Damn, the place was really packed with people this time" but you think it every year... and it gets more and more...

Even though it was so crowded I still had the chance for very good and interesting conversations at the different stands and I tried some really excellent whiskys... too much to mention them all but here are a few:
  • 20 yo. Highland Park bottled in the 70s
  • 12, 15 and 17 yo. Bruichladdich bottled in the 70s
  • Laphroaig 20 yo. from the SMWS
  • Laphroaig 1979 - 1999, Berrys' Own Collection
  • Springbank 12 yo., redbrown ceramic jug
  • Macallan from 1963
  • Ardbeg Provenance
  • and so on...
The summary of my visit to the Whiskyfair 2013 in Limburg? Full house and tons of excellent whiskys!

Nothing more to say, just enjoy the pix!
