12th November, 2009 – Presse Wine Bar, Elwood
This tasting showcases the difficult-to-find award winning malts from the 2009 Whisky Awards, conducted in August with the trophies and medals awarded in September 2009 in Adelaide. We judged 52 whiskies submitted by producers and agents. We awarded 26 medals – 3 Gold, 10 Silver and 13 Bronze. To be awarded any medal the whisky had to impress a panel of 9 judges and average a score over 80/100.
Highlights of the Awards include:
Lark Distillers, LD #39 was the Trophy Winner for best A ustralian malt and was Craig’s third highest scoring malt. The Benromach Peat Smoke (46%) was the second highest ranking malt overall and one of only three Gold Medal Winners. The Isle of Jura Superstition was awarded Craig’s Trophy or Best Value for Money.
