The Glenallachie Virtual Whisky Festival Review


I have often wondered how virtual festivals work and if they are enjoyable. After reading this, I love how well-planned out this is and how fun the experience was!

I find it so interesting that the age of a whisky carries over so noticeably into its flavor! From your taste-writing, the GlenAllachie at twelve years and the #508 sound like the ones I would enjoy best. I can tell by your happy smile you had a memorable and delightful experience. 🙂
Thanks for sharing!

I have to admit, I would rather do a virtual festival and enjoy the samples of the drink in my house because it’s more enjoyable, like you don’t have to pay any extra for food! It’s ideal, these were some amazing whiskies to sample, absolutely amazing it was. The #508 was the best because it just provided the most pleasant flavour. It’s crazy when you rack whisky into barrels how the flavour and aromas change over time, but that’s whisky for you. I really enjoyed this festival and I cannot wait to do another one like this again 😁

💖 Virtual festivals certainly do have their perks! I love the idea of combining the joy of being at home with a great experience. 🙂

Hi Luke. What an excellent review, thank you. These whiskies sound amazing and I will certainly be adding them to my mental list of ones that I need to try. I do like the Speyside malts – far less likely to have that excessive peaty taste than some others (I know many people actually like this). If you are looking for others to sample, might I suggest:
Glen Marnoch Speyside Single Malt – Aldi!!!
Glenfiddich 12 Year Old Single Malt
Penderyn Welsh Malt Whisky
Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky
Despite being the cheapest single malt that you are likely to find, the Aldi offering is excellent and has won many awards. Well worth a try.

Thank you so much, I would highly recommend adding the selected samples to your list, these can be purchased from!

I am again a lover of my Speyside Malts, and the Glen Marnoch I’ve actually got a bottle of, I’ve had half of it already and it’s beautiful. Not bad for £15.00 from Aldi.

You have a fantastic tone, thank you.

And, I just remembered that I need to search for a virtual whiskey festival here in the US (easier shipping, I imagine).

Thank you, I do really love doing virtual festivals, they are amazing and you can have a laugh whilst being at your own house. It’s cheaper which is an advantage!

Virtual festivals have many advantages, I think. Cheaper like you said is huge, but also with no public transportation around here, staying right at home is advantageous as well.

Looks like a really great experience. Though I don’t like this drink but would love to have those samples and taste different flavors. This is a great way to feel all those flavors and variety of the drink.

Whisky is a hard one to come by and not many people are a massive lover for this small tipple, it has shown though how whisky has become one of the many spirits high in the mass market. Thanks for your comment 😁

Such a detailed review, the experience sounds brilliant! I’m not really a big whiskey fan (mainly as I’ve never drunk it) but these sound pretty fab xx

It was a fantastic experience, I really enjoyed it, I can’t wait to try this event again.

My boyfriend & I both enjoy whiskey a bunch (though my preferences lean towards scotch) & I still have yet to experience much of the whisky world, and I barely know what I’m talking about! 😅 I might have to give some of these a try! Thanks for the read :]

I do love all types of whisky, I do have my own preference and that’s sherried whisky, which is beautiful and sweet, don’t like something to spicy.
