WhiskyFest 2017 Photo Recap

Most Popular... The Macallan

Nobody likes going to school (OK, maybe kindergarten) but last night's second annual WhiskyFest provided lucky Washingtonians with the kind of education we can all get behind... 300+ whiskies from all over the world (including Japan!) It was held at the luxurious Marriott Marquis on Massachusetts Avenue, NW, and featured multiple food buffets (Beef Tenderloin Latkes, I love you) free seminars and easy access to unlimited pours of top notch whiskey. Especially good? Our #1 taste of the night, Calumet Farm Bourbon Whiskey; but truth be told, it's impossible to try them all, even if you're lucky enough to have early access, via a VIP ticket. Still, no matter how long you stay (an hour and a half for yours truly) you're destined to have a whiskey-rific good time. We're already counting down to next year (April 17, 2018, if you're curious.)

Next stop on the tour? Chicago (sold-out) on April 21st, followed by stops in San Francisco & New York in October and November.
