Malt Stock “The Relaxed Whisky Weekend” – Whisky News

The Relaxed Whisky Weekend

7 – 9 September 2012  
Fellow whisky enthusiasts,

Just one more week and it’s Maltstock time again! We’re all really looking forward to it. It promises to be a fantastic weekend.  We have a record number of 9 very interesting masterclasses for you. There will be music and entertainment, and a Barrel Race!. And excellent food! Of course there’s the brilliant BBQGuru team with a whole hog and BBQing with Ardbeg. The Highlander Inn will make you the best Scottish breakfast. And on Saturday afternoon there will a delicious selection of food to match whisky.

It wouldn’t really be a whisky weekend without whisky…. Well there’s plenty to share and enjoy! We have most independent bottlers represented. The latest additons are Malts of Scotland and Wilson Morgan. But many more, please visit our website to see who all will be at Maltstock. Full Proof is there again as well with his amazing collection of some of the best old and new whiskies. And of course there’s the big Share and Enjoy table where all our visitors share whisky they bring.

Just a wee reminder to all of you coming to Maltstock. Please let us know your Masterclass preference before 31 Augustus. Won’t be easy to choose though. The launch of the very first Four Roses single barrel for Europe is definitly something to look forward to. But the first tasting by Tatsuya (Suntory) in Holland is as well. Sam Simmons (Balvenie) and Donald MacLellan (Glendronach) will surely bring something very special. And the guys from Master of Malt named their tasting ” Something Special”.  Billy Abbott (Speciality Drinks) and Tony’s Virtual Glenfiddich Tour will make sure we get the perfect start at Maltstock! Aberfeldy is one I really look forward to. And last but not least there’s Georges Nosing Academy!

The Whisky Shop Dufftown team has been working hard to create a challenging and fun whisky quiz for the forthcoming Maltstock. To win you are going to have to be a team of cunning minds and have a good bit of whisky knowledge as well. There will be 8 rounds including famous whisky people, distillery visitor centres and the hard facts on the malt whisky capital of the world so get revising. There will be great prizes for those that know their malt.  Do you have what it takes?  If you are the type of person that knows the capacity of the distilleries on Islay and exactly what Balvenie distillery looks like you may have a chance. But don’t expect these questions to actually appear. That would be too easy!!!

The whiskyquiz isn’t the only opportunity to win some great prizes. There’s also a big raffle. We would like to thank all who contributed this year. What a fantatsic raffle we’ve got.
