It was a busy night in the city. I waited 45 minutes for an Uber taxi downtown and was almost tempted to take an UberX. But of all the amazing places you could be in Chicago on March 18th, WhiskyFest 2016 at the Hyatt Regency on Wacker was the grandaddy of them all.
Because of my Uber-fueled tardiness, by the time I arrived, the VIP event was well under way and the chances of getting sips of some of the more exclusive whiskies dwindled, but I did manage to squeeze in a few tasty drams.
While photos of the whiskies themselves were often difficult (compounded by the fact my camera wasn’t cooperating), I was able to document many of the whiskies on display at the event.
