Whisky Advocate: WhiskyFest Returns To New York

November 17, 2021

The autumn run of WhiskyFest events continued with WhiskyFest New York this past Thursday, November 11, at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. The pours were flowing for an exuberant crowd of whisky lovers, who also had their choice of four seminars presented throughout the night.

VIP ticket holders sampled a world of rare whiskies, including aged single malt Scotches like Balblair 25 year old, Benromach 45 year old Heritage, Bunnahabhain 25 year old, and Glen Moray 21 year old, as well as Irish gems like Glendalough 25 year old and the newly released Bushmills 12 year old. There were also aged-stated whiskies from Japan, among them a 30 year old single grain whisky from Fuji Gotemba, complemented by an array of whiskies from Kaikyo and Nikka. American labels on offer included Proof and Wood 100 Seasons 25 year old, Heaven’s Door Bootleg Volume II, 2020, Blackened x Willet Kentucky Straight Rye, and Blood Oath Pact 7. Whisky Advocate has a full recap of the festivities.

The final WhiskyFest event of the year will be held on December 3, at the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco. Get your tickets here. —Julia Higgins
