Whisky Tasting at the Colorado Scottish Festival

Dive into the Celtic world!  Educate your palate, learn, and have fun!  Get your ticket in advance for the always-popular whisky-tasting at the Colorado Scottish Festival.  Yes, “whisky” is how the Scots spell it, and it’s single-malt Scotch. Experience for yourself why Scotch whisky is called the “Water of Life.”

Join one of the whisky tastings at the Festival with whisky aficionado, singer and storyteller Buz Dabkowski. If you’ve ever attended a Scotch Whisky tasting presented by Buz, you know what a fabulous experience it is!  Buz will amaze you with his knowledge of whisky, and at the same time, have you laughing at his commentary.  If you’ve not been to one of Buz’s presentations, don’t miss out!

Buz has been teaching the art and history of different liquors for decades and has a soft spot in his heart for Scotch whisky.  One of his favorite sayings is, “Scotch is the most artistic and magical distilled spirit I have found throughout history.”  Buz has worked in the spirits industry at all levels and is in demand for his knowledge both nationally and internationally. His stories, history, poems and songs are educational and entertaining.
