Faithful readers of our blog know that there are many excellent reasons to go to whisky tastings. While drinking with other passionate whisky fans, you get to talk with whisky experts and sample a wide swath of exotic drams: X-treme aged expressions from beloved brands, amazing new single malt special editions, incredible cask-strength single casks, and bottles that you’ve always wanted to try.
To my mind, in the United States there is literally—and I literally mean literally literally—no better way to spend your whisky-tasting dollars than Dr. Matt Lurin’s 2019 Water of Life event. It’s coming up soon in New York City, just a bit more than a month away, on May 16th, with the Ultra VIP tasting on May 15th. This year’s event will take place at The Platform At The Pennsy. It lasts from 5:45 to 10:30pm, so you never need to feel rushed as you sample your way through a robust curated selection of remarkable whiskies and delicious foods.
Early bird tickets (standard and VIP ticket) end on April 15th, so move quickly if you want to save $50. Plus, you can get the Super Duper Malt Impostor Special $50 discount by using the code WOLPENNSY when you purchase your tickets at this website.
Still not convinced? Check out my review of last year’s event.
