I go to this event every year and it's a great chance to try-before-you-buy some of the rarer and more expensive bottlings. Plus it's on a boat so swaying back and forth is considered perfectly normal.

A Chance to Win a Pair of Tickets to Whiskies of the World
Want to try your luck at winning a pair of tickets? All you need to do is leave a comment below, telling me what's a whisky/whiskey you've loved lately. You won't be judged on your choice- I just want to hear what people have been trying and loving lately- then maybe I can find it at WoW.
Fine print: The tickets are for admission only, and obviously you need to be of legal drinking age to get in. Contest ends midnight March 7th. One (1) entry/comment per person. (However if you want to reply to someone else's comment please feel free- just make sure you hit the "reply" button after their comment. Those responses won't count toward the contest but won't disqualify you.) Use a real email address (it's not visible to the public) or I won't be able to tell you that you won. I'll pick the winner using a random number generator.
