I inaugurated my Holidays with the whisky festival – Whisky Live Singapore 2014. The event was organized in colonial Raffles Hotel, where approx. in 1915 famous drink Singapore Sling was created. At the place I arrived at 10 am with the opening. I was a little surprised to see, as at the entrance there were no queues. Both at Whisky Live Tokyo and Paris, a and in Limburg, crowds gathered an hour before the opening. Probably it can be explained by a very high humidity and temperatures exceeding 30° C. Much more visitors came in the late afternoon and it became like this till the end, at approx 10 pm.

Everything was done in a number of areas, in one gins, vodka and the like, in the second whisky, in the Long Bar collecting whiskies and separately Masterclasses.

In the price of the ticket we received Glencairn glass and could try everything, except collector drams in the Long Bar.

In Singapore a number of distilleries showed, though far less than in Tokyo or Paris. I visited most of the stands and met new whisky enthusiasts. I also met a few friends. Here is my photorelation.

BenRiach and GlenDronach family. I must admit that both distilleries are doing well now and produce very good whisky in many versions. I found here BenRiach 1988 Generations Singapore Exclusive, which quickly ended. I have got a bottle of this single cask and I like it very much.
Brand Ambassador Douglas Cook, who I already met before, also attended festival.
