Whisky Festival Jastrzebia Gora 2015

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.

Comparing to last year the list of exhibitors significantly increased, everyone could find something suitable for him.

Among other manufacturers worth mentioning is Macallan with Ruby, Amber and Siena, Coal Ila Moch, Finlaggan or Aberlur ABunadh. Due to the growing market demand for whisky and melting older distilates, we will...
