6:00pm The Glenlivet


7:05pm Ewan Morgan and Gregor Cattanach (Diageo) The Blind Truth About 
Aging Whisky

It’s an age-old question: when it comes to spirits, does older mean better? This seminar will challenge even the most seasoned palates to answer that question. The Diageo Whisky  team, will lead a blind tasting of whiskies with varying ages from Diageo’s stocks including  liquid that has never been offered to the public before. The panel will ask participants for their opinions of each, before revealing the names and, more importantly, their ages. Attendees will discover what their favorite whisky was, followed by an opportunity to ask questions about each. Will the older whiskies live up to the hype? Find out if older really does mean better. The truth may surprise you.
