Universal Whisky Experience Update

So, we've got the updated SUPER POUR list.  Sounds like a comic book hero, but it's even more exciting.  Some of these bottlings are worth upwards of $400 per oz, that would be more than the cost of your ticket, just to be clear.  These are the confirmed super pours for the event.  We've also got the Master Class Schedule fleshed out and the classes are already selling out.  Don't wait to contact us if you are interested in attending as we've said before we're getting an INCREDIBLE deal which is only available to K&L Customers.  We can't advertise it publicly, but I assure you it will be well worth your time and money to come to Vegas with us.  Here is your super pour list:

GLENROTHES – WHAT MATTERS AGE OR MATURITY ? – Pour Value $510.00                        

“The Glenrothes does things differently, as enthusiasts we love this about the distillery, not least they bottle exclusively based on vintage. Ross Hendry will lead you through the The Glenrothes vintage concept and why it is maturity that matters and not age. Ross will illustrate this concept by taking you through a current vintage from the 70′s, 80′s and 90′s as well as an extinct vintage from the same decade. This will not only underline the difference from vintage to vintage in terms of flavour profile and style but will also serve to demonstrate the fact that vintages are finite in their nature… Once they are gone, they are gone forever. A unique opportunity to taste, for the last time, the storied 1985 and 1975 and to be introduced to their exceptional replacements the 1988 and the 1978.”
