WhiskeyFest NY looming

Organizers of Malt Advocate magazine's 9th-annual WhiskyFest New York, scheduled for Monday, Nov. 6, are promising in excess -- if that's not a bad word to use in this context -- of 200 of "the world's finest, rarest, and most expensive, single malt and blended Scotch, Irish, bourbon, Tennessee, and Canadian whiskies to sample in one grand ballroom."

Said ballroom is at the Mariott Marquis on Times Square for the 6:30 to 10 p.m. event. Tickets are $105 for general admission and $145 for VIP. The focus, say the organizers, "is on education, and distillery representatives will be on hand at the pouring booths to explain how the whiskies are made."

Among the speakers: Parker Beam, master distiller at Heaven Hill; John Campbell, distillery manager at Laphroaig; Ronnie Cox, director of The Glenrothes; George Grant, brand ambassador for Glenfarclas; Lincoln Henderson, whiskey expert for Suntory; Spike McClure, "master of Scotch knowledge" for The Classic Malts; Chris Morris, master distiller for Old Forester; Fred Noe of Jim Beam’s Small Batch Bourbons; Sharon Owen, brand ambassador for Glenfiddich & Balvenie; Richard Paterson, master blender for The Dalmore; Dan Tullio, band ambassador for Canadian Club, and Charlotte Voisey, brand ambassador for Glenfiddich & Balvenie.
