And the Winner of the Bowmore Glasstorm Glasses is…

Parrot

On Thursday last week, I posted a full review for the soon-to-be-released £16,000 Bowmore 50 Year Old, here. Any of you who read my account of the Bowmore evening at the Park Lane Hilton will know it was a jolly good whisky. To précis my thoughts, if you’ve recently saved the money for a Fiat Doblo 1.6 MPV, I urge you instead to buy a fixie bike, and spend the difference on the new Bowmore 50. I think that’s the sensible choice.

That night, during the unveiling of the record-breaking single malt, speakers talked us through the manufacture of each aspect of the finished package: the whisky, the presentation case and the decanter. First up was Bowmore Manager, Eddie MacAffer; followed by acclaimed carpenter woodsmith, Peter Toaig; and finally Nichola Burns and Brodie Nairn from Glasstorm.

Dapper dolphin

There are people who are born winners. Other people become winners. Some people are born as dolphins, which means that they aren’t actually people at all. We’re not concerned about dolphins today (although we should all help save them from extinction!).

No, today it’s all about the lucky winner of our rather marvellous Gleneagles competition!

Master of Malt win ‘Online Retailer of the Year’ at the World Whiskies Awards 2012

Well - last week was quite a week. Further to staying up unfeasibly late on Tuesday drinking Hot chocolate and Lemonade into the wee hours with the lovely folk at Glenfarclas and Pol Roger, I was invited to judge the World Whiskies Awards on the Wednesday evening (an amazing showing all round, the results of which can be found here). .

Following that, I was up bright and early (ish) to present at the World Whiskies Conference on Thursday afternoon (I didn’t say any rude words during the course of my speech. I am proud of this).

After the world whiskies conference was the World Whiskies Awards, whereupon myself and another couple of directors were left at a table, unsupervised by any kind of grown-ups, in the presence of a bottle of Kavalan Solist, and a Batch 30 bottle of Aberlour a’Bunadh. More...

Japan rules at World Whisky Awards 2012

by Gareth     23. March 2012 14:51

Japanese distillers made a fine showing last night at Whisky Magazine’s 6th annual World Whisky Awards.

Yamazaki scooped the coveted Best Single Malt Whisky award for its 25 Year Old expression, while Nikka won the Best Blended Whisky category with its Taketsuru 17 Year Old.

This marks the second year in a row Yamazaki’s has triumphed, with their sublime 1984 vintage taking home the best single malt prize in 2011.More...
