Last year we had covered the Dalmore whiskey tasting session, which was about the experience of tasting the brand finest and rarest offerings. Such as event goes on to prove that fine whiskey tasting does indeed have takers, and that the coveted beverage is now becoming an investment tool. With high returns on rare blends in the market, the demand and the prices are going up by steep margins, thus making whisky collectors the new age investor gurus, and tasting sessions have indeed become rather sought after. Atlanta based real estate boss, Mahesh Patel is one such entrepreneur whose creations Ultimate whiskey Experience is the talk of the town in Las Vegas. The annual event, stated to be held over March 2-3 this year, will be a true connoisseurs delight, as some of the rarest and finest whiskeys will be offer for an elaborate tasting session.
What is being stated as the ‘Rolls Royce of tasting sessions’, The Ultimate Whisky Experience (also called the Nth 2012) will be a platform for those who have developed, and are looking to further enhance their understanding of rare whiskeys along with novice counterparts. With a whole range beginning from the traditional Scotches, there will be a few from Japan as well, which will give the visitors something to cherish for a long time, and if the wallet permits, even buy some of it. The entry to the event will be allowed through different packages on offer which are as follows:
·High roller package
