Few things can and will universally make grown men giggle like schoolgirls and jump up and down for joy. Hearing the words “75-year-old scotch” is going to be one of those things.

Let me repeat that. 75-year-old scotch. Scotch older than some countries in the world. Scotch that, when it was produced,

Are you salivating yet? Have thoughts crossed your mind about how to get your hands on such a holy grail? Well, we’ve got news for you. All you need to do is buy a ticket and hop on a place to the adult wonderland that is Las Vegas, because at this year’s Universal Whisky Experience, you’ll have a chance to sample not only Mortlach 75 Year Old by Gordon and Macphail, but you’ll also be able to taste many other of the world’s most exclusives whiskies.

In its sixth year, The Universal Whiskey Experience—the world’s first luxury whisky tasting experience—will be held at the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas from March 2-5. In that time, guests will be treated to the best of the best—the grand total value of the whiskies at the Universal Whisky Experience is estimated to be around $3 Million.

Three. Million.

“The Universal Whisky Experience is one-of-a-kind access to sips of rare whiskies, often poured by the Master Distiller himself,” says Universal Whisky Experience founder Mahesh Patel. “The event provides a forum for whisky enthusiasts and collectors to trade notes on their own purchases and collections,” he said.

There’s more to the event, though, than just some of the best whiskies in the world. Throughout the event, guests will be treated to exclusive brand master classes held by the Master Distillers and Blenders themselves, hors d’oeuvres that will blow your mind, and did we mention the whiskies? (Okay, we know we did, but come on—75-year-old scotch.)

Basically, this premiere event is the place to be if you consider yourself a scotch connoisseur.

This year, too, the Universal Whisky Experience is also offering the High Roller Package. Priced at $2495 for the three-day event, High Rollers will be treated to exclusive access to all show event and tastings including: the New High Roller Day on Thursday, March 3rd with private suite tastings and exclusive High Roller super pours, private events with other High Rollers, one-on-one meetings with brand ambassadors, a whisky speed dating event at Tableau, all Super Pours (valued at $300 and up per pour) at the Nth 2016 main tasting show, a gift bag unlike any other, and more.

This is not something to miss out on.

Easy bourbon cocktails: You don’t need to be an expert to make these drinks
You don't need an advanced degree to make these bourbon cocktails


We love drinking bourbon whiskey. We enjoy it neat, on the rocks, or (in the case of cask strength) with a splash or two of water. To add to that, we like mixing with bourbon. We love a classic bourbon and sparkling water on a hot day. To add to that, the sweet corn, vanilla, charred oak, and dried fruit flavors mix well in a wide variety of cocktails.
