We here at the Malt Impostor are very pleased to announce the Single Malt & Scotch Whisky Extravaganza Fall Schedule—and the fact that we will attend the Boston event at the Taj Hotel in October. We’ll be the ones in tuxedos and Groucho Marx glasses.
Since our typical modus operandi involves splitting a 50 ml airline bottle three ways, the prospect of sampling over 100 rare and exceptional single malt and Scotch whiskies in one evening was at first daunting. But after a special meeting we screwed up our courage (along with our previously extant weekend plans) and set out on a special workout regimen in hopes of approximating the “fitness” we will need for the Boston event. While we have recently begun to see real results from our training, we have also seen a corresponding increase in our overall sense of well-being and, we daresay, our individual and collective eudaimonia. As we take our “workouts” to the next level, we anticipate adding other corresponding increases to that list, including ones in workplace absenteeism and spousal annoyance. We will press on through such challenges, however, because we really are that committed to this cause.
We have also begun cramming so that we don’t stand out like sore Impostors when we meet the representatives from each distillery who will be on hand at the Extravaganza. We feel more confident about our abilities to handle the dinner buffet and the premium imported cigars that are also included (and to that end, we’re researching off-site cigar smoking locations, since so enjoying them on-site is strictly défendu), though we have taken time–each of us on his own–to increase the size of our feedbags, so when it comes time to strap them on, we’ll be ready to go.
If the over 100 whiskies, dinner buffet, premium cigars, and distillery representatives aren’t enough to tempt you to sign up, then you’re probably one of those insipid types who need the additional incentives of the promise of a souvenir tasting glass and the possibility of raffle prizes to spark your interest (it’s very dark in there, isn’t it?). Well, even if you do fall into this sad category, the geniuses behind the Single Malt & Scotch Whisky Extravaganza have you covered as well (yes, that means a glass and raffle entries are included).
You can find the complete fall schedule here:
Tickets to the Extravaganza are $120 each for Members and $135 each for Non-member guests. If you are not a member, however, not to worry: just use the promotional code “TMI2010” (that stands for The Malt Impostor, and, once again, not Too Much Information) and you will receive your first two tickets at the Member price ($120 each). Purchase tickets directly online:
or by calling (800) 990-1991. Once again, use the special Malt Impostor promotional code “TMI2010” to receive your first two tickets at the Member rate.
If you sign up because of this post, please email us and let us know. Also, please consider letting us know how your Extravaganza experience went: we enjoy living through others vicariously and reality television isn’t doing it for us any longer.
Hope to see some of you in Boston in October. We can’t wait.
