Cinderella Whisky Fair 2017

Jari Mämmi (Teerenpeli) and myself.

Cinderella Whisky Fair 2017 was my fourth time at this fair! You can read about last year here.

The fair is held once a year, and the boat does three trips from Stockholm to Åland and back again, three days in a row. Approximately 1500 people attend each trip, which means a lot of whisky loving people are given the chance to enjoy a lot of whiskies.

While I queued for entering the fair a couple of Swedish guys asked me if I like whisky(!). I told them I sure do, and that was why I was at the Whisky Fair 😉 They then asked if I had come alone and all the way from Oslo only to attend the fair. When I said yes, they where impressed. But, why would I not do that? You will never feel alone amongst fellow whisky nerds 🙂

As always I had a great time at the fair! And as always I had too little time to taste all the whiskies I wanted to, and to talk to all the people I wanted to, during the seven hours it was open.

These are the spirits I tasted, and listed in the order I tasted them:
