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.
