We are very pleased to announce our annual whisky festival, The Only Whisky Show, is returning this year and will be held in Joburg on 28 and 29 July and Cape Town on 4 and 5 August. Don't miss out on SA's best whisky show featuring over 200 premium whiskies. Tickets coming soon.www.whiskybrother.com
Just bought tickets for the Friday night. Super excited to be going to another whisky show. Looks like this will be the replacement for whisky live.
Fair enough. I only started drinking whisky about 2-3 years ago. My first real experience with whisky was at WL in 2018/9 not sure on the year, it was great but if your saying this is even better then I'm even more excited.Uuuuhhhm, NO - WL was decent until around 2010 - then became a bit of a joke and excuse for a piss up.
The Only Whisky Show (TOWS) is what WL was back in 2004/5 and for a year or two after that. A proper show, with great workshops and the ability to talk to brand ambassadors and try whiskies you most likley have not tried before.
I used to fly up to JHB for TOWS - am very glad Marc and the WB team have added dates for CT.

Thanks for the hype
Is it alright if it's still an excuse for a piss up?
Probably an idea for those attending to post up their 5/6 drams that they're targeting. Could be educational and help others choose their top 5 drams.No worries - for me it was sad that WL went from a show where I got to try things I had not tried before and talk to people who could tell me more about what I was trying.
TOWS is a show like that - so anyone can enjoy it, but I usually look at the list of what will be on show in advance and pick the 5 drams I want to try.
After 5 or 6, you are no longer tasting, but drinking
I cannot resist so will be the turd in the waterpipe:
You go the the Holy Land and come back with....this???
I'm quite enjoying the Inchmurrin 12 I got from CFS but can't say I would rush out to buy it again, and definitely not for R750 odd it normally goes for. For R275 it's decent hahaMust admit the more I try Loch Lomond the more I realize that I do not like their Whisky much. Once my current bottles are finished I doubt that I will buy any more.
Apparently this one is good though according to @BartSimpson Might crack open my sample tonight.
