Anyone aware of upcoming New York City single-malt tastings?

    The grand-daddy of all tastings, WhiskyLive, is coming up on March 30.

    The Brandy Library has a regular spirit school that does tastings.
    The Scotch Malt Whisky Society has their single malt extraveganza coming up on May 7.

      Try joining The Whisky Guild (http://whiskyguild.com/ ), where folks regularly post about tastings. In addition, if you are in the NYC area, you should join the NYC Whisky Enthusiasts (http://whiskey.meetup.com/6/) Meet-Up Group that hosts monthly tastings.

      The Brandy Library also hosts Single Malt Saturdays which are free tastings nearly every Saturday. Check their calendar (http://brandylibrary.com/sections2007/calendar.htm ).

      There are plenty of events coming up. In addition to the Scotch Malt Whisky Society and Whisky Live, there is the Whisky Cruise on the Hudson (http://www.whiskyguild.com/whisky_events_09_ship.html ) on September 10th and Whisky Fest on November 10th (http://www.maltadvocate.com/docs/whis... ).
