Scores of whiskies, two boys, one room… sounds like a decent weekend!
That’s right, the Whisky Waffle boys are making their way across the pond to the Melbourne leg of Australia’s premiere whisky festival. The session features whiskies from and home and and away, ranging from the Glenlivet Founders Reserve, the Hibiki 17yo and the new Laprohaig 15yo to the Starward Wine Cask Edition 1, the Dry Fly Straight Wheat Whisky, and the NZ Whisky Co 1987 27yo Single Malt. The boys are also very excited for the opportunity to meet Eddie Russell of the Wild Turkey distillery and Russells Reserve fame.
Stay tuned for increasingly creative tweets as the day wears on, and give us a shout out via Twitter or Facebook (or the blog) if you want a personalised on-the-spot review or musing about something on the day. We will be attending the (sold-out) Saturday (25/7) afternoon session starting at 1pm, although we believe there are still tickets left for Friday (24/7) and Saturday (25/7) evenings (don’t quote us on that).
For more information, including the full whisky list, you can visit the official event website here.
See you on the floor when the Whisky goes Live!
ENVY!!! Enjoy triple for us lads n lasses who cannot be there. I also understand Goa’s Paul John BOLD expression will be launched there too – keep an eye out! 🙂
Just talking to the Paul John guys. It’s really good stuff. I’m very impressed. Oh, and they know who you are. Good to have friends around the world.

Haha! Delighted you could check out their expressions… seems we both think they are on to something! 🙂
It should be noted that Eddie Russell is NOT with Buffalo Trace Distillery; he is at WILD TURKEY Distillery.
Oh gosh, that’s embarrassing. Slip of the keyboard. Of course he is. Was writing an article with Buffalo Trace in it just before writing this, so had it on the brain. Fixed now. Thanks for flagging that up.
Hey, what’s up? Is it Saturday there yet? Already Sunday! Time to go check those tweets…
