Fun on 100 points.
Whisky Festival in Jastrzębia Gora is becoming a regular feature of the landscape. At the end of August it was held for the second time. Of course also this year I could not get past the event (report from 2014 is here).
Generally convention was similar to the last year but everything took place at a much larger space. Initially I planned to delve into the secrets of whisky at different stands, but I let myself to drawn into the relaxed atmosphere of picnic and felt into a whirl of fun. In fact, it was such a festival, a meeting place in a good mood. Without pretending anything and without tension. Very nice. In this climate there were also time for discussions about whisky.
Entrance to the festival and a tasting glass was calculated at 100 PLZ for two days – very reasonable. Comparing to last year the list of exhibitors significantly increased, everyone could find something suitable for him.
This year I also participated in many additional classes, eg. combining food with whisky, recognizing the contents of glasses by the smell and taste. It was interesting to guess the version of Wild Turkey 81 or 101 in prepared dishes, where Bourbon was the basic spice. Quite difficult. I couldn’t also leave the course with the blending, I prepared a very nice whisky.
This year’s Festival Whisky in Jastrzebia Gora have to be called successful, from year to year it is getting better. Excellent opportunity for meetings or even organize a trip for friends. Just fun, on 100 points.
See you next year!
