Whisky Live Paris 2019 : Favourites

2019-10-09

It felt like a very long time I hadn’t attended a whisky festival and Whisky Live Paris 2019 last weekend was just the perfect occasion to quench my thirst for new drams !

This year, the festival was held in a brand new location (Grande Halle de la Villette), bigger than ever, which made it very hard (I mean, completely impossible) for me to visit all stands so I decided to set myself a personal roadmap :

–> DO NOT BE TEMPTED TO TRY WHISKIES YOU ALREADY HAVE OPEN OR UNOPENED AT HOME

–> TRY ONLY WHISKIES YOU HAVE NEVER TASTED BEFORE

–> ONLY GO FOR WHISKIES YOU CAN AFFORD (well, didn’t really stick to this one x))

–> PRIORITISE THE NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK, THEY DESERVE IT

–> DON’T QUEUE FOR A DRAM, IT’S NOT DISNEYLAND (Sorry Bruichladdich, Chichibu & Compass Box, had to pass my turn this year ;))

–> DON’T CLIMB THE STAIRS UP TO THE VIP SECTION, THAT’S NOT WHY YOU ARE HERE (contrary to many visitors who don’t even take a look at the stands and go straight to VIP…)

 


Anyway, while trying to follow the above “charter”, here are my personal highlights from the show :
