WhiskyCast to Visit Islay Festival of Malt & Music May 2010 – Scotch Whisky News


Islay Bound!
Get ready for a WhiskyCast marathon in May! I’ll be attending the Islay Festival of Malt & Music (also known as Feis Ile) at the end of May, and will be doing NINE shows in NINE days from the NINE distilleries on Islay and Jura that participate in one of Islay’s biggest events of the year. Listen to WhiskyCast for details as the festival gets closer, and if you’re planning to be on Islay between May 22-30, look for me and be sure to say hello!

In fact, Feis Ile will be my second trip to Scotland in a month. I’ve been invited to be a speaker at the annual World Whiskies Conference in Glasgow on April 20. This is a trade-only conference primarily for sales and marketing folks, and I’ve been asked to discuss the point of view that whisky connoisseurs have on the current state of the business. If you have some suggestions on what I can tell them, please let me know. I’m also planning to visit a couple of distilleries after the conference ends, with an eye to visiting Speyside this time around.
