    I think these awards are starting to become quite silly. How is it possible that anyone can rate the 15 year old Johnnie Walker (mediocre whisky with a rating of 82,18 on whiskybase.com) ahead of Compass Box Flaming or Heart Glenmorangie Signet just to mention two?

    How can you rate Talisker 10 ahead of Talisker 18, 25 or 30?

    Glen Scotia Victoriana (yet again a mediocre whisky) ahead of any Springbank or Longrow?!

    What in the world is Glenmorangie Lasanta even doing on the list?

    There are so many strange choices on the list that I find it just silly….
