So... While I work at getting all the photos from the Whiskies of the World event (attended by over 12 of the 3DC this weekend) in order and published, I figured I'd give you a fun sneak peak at the 3DC founders at the past 3 WOW events:

WOW, 2006. Our first time in SF for Whiskies of the World:


WOW, 2007. Year number 2; old hats by this point:


WOW, 2008. Year 3 and the dawn of a new era for the 3DC. This time we showed up with a posse (photo of the posse to come soon):



This year was indeed another milestone for the 3 Drunken Celts. My more lengthy blog will be posted at some point in the next week hopefully. I have a lot to do and say, both 3DC-wise and work-wise, which means I need to focus on my priorities for the moment and get some stuff caught up before I delve into a full blown picture rich recap of the Whiskies of the World... but hold tight, it IS coming.

It should come as no surprise to anyone who knows a 3 Drunken Celt, that John Glaser is considered a friend of the group. Raz, Fergus, and Seamus all met John for the first time at the Whiskies of the World in 2006, where he had presented a tasting class surrounding his blends. The next year, we enjoyed his Whisky Pairing dinner the night before the Whiskies of the World expo where he masterfully paired a different dram for each of the 5 courses served including both his newly released “Oak Cross” and “Flaming Heart” blends.

For this coming year’s WoW expo, Seamus has already purchased his ticket for John’s class on blending your own whiskies and highly recommends you do the same since it is sure to sell out quickly.

As you will read in the Wired Magazine article referenced below, John has a distinct knack for blending, and has shaken up the world of whiskies a bit with his revolutionary take on some long standing whisky traditions, sometimes coming face to face with legal ramifications resulting in a discontinued product. Ah, Spice Tree, we barely knew ye (this was actually the first taste the 3DC had of John’s work, which had been surreptitiously hand-carried across the pond in a blue water jug having been filled directly from the cask only a day prior).

If you haven’t yet decided whether or not to attend the Whiskies of the World expo in San Francisco on March 28th, 2008, use this Wired Magazine article to help convince you, if only to meet John in person. You will immediately find John to be both personable and approachable, but more importantly knowledgeable about whiskies to a degree that outshines most other whisky connoisseurs around the globe.

Take it from the 3 Drunken Celts, you won’t be disappointed with any offering from Compass Box, or John Glaser’s classes.
