GLENMORANGIE GRAND VINTAGE MALT 1991 WINS WHISKY OF THE YEAR AT THE 2019 INTERNATIONAL WHISKY COMPETITION®

IWC1

[LAS VEGAS, NV, June 14, 2019]  Dr Bill Lumsden, Director of Distilling, Whisky Creation Whisky Stocks at Glenmorangie Distillery becomes Master Distiller of the Year for crafting the Whisky of the Year 2019 and will receive the top prize in the industry, the Golden Barrel Trophy.

The International Whisky Competition just released its results for this year’s most respected blind tasting judging event. The top recognition, Whisky of the Year, was awarded to Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1991 which scored 97 points, the highest scoring whisky of the competition.

2019 Official results: www.whiskycompetition.com/2019-results

The 10th edition of the International Whisky Competition took place in Las Vegas over three days, from May 15 to 17 and received whiskies from all over the world from what distilleries believe to be their very best. A world-class tasting panel made of whisky, spirit, beer and wine experts blind tasted each whisky on an individual basis (8 minutes per whisky).

Each whisky was scored using a comprehensive 100-point scale system developed by Sebastien Gavillet, IWC Head of Tasting Panel. This process and the fact that only three medals are awarded in any category make the International Whisky Competition the most followed whisky competition and one of the most professional competitions of its kind in the world.

We warmly congratulate Dr Bill Lumsden, as well as his team, for creating such an exceptional whisky. This is the third time in the last four years that Dr Lumsden receive the highest awards for his whisky creations.

Last year’s Whisky of the Year was Aberlour A’Bunadh, which scored 97.4 points. Glenmorangie Distillery will receive the Golden Barrel Trophy for winning the Whisky of the Year during a ceremony to be held this summer in Tain, Scotland.

About the International Whisky Competition®

The International Whisky Competition is the most followed Whisky Competition on Social Media and brings whiskies from around the world to be blind tasted and rated by a professional tasting panel using the most comprehensive tasting method available. 15 criteria are required to produce the tasting notes as well as aroma and flavor profiles for the International Whisky Guide.

It’s the only competition in the spirits world to deliver unique medals designed to promote each of the winning whiskies. Only 3 medals (Gold, Silver Bronze) are awarded per category. The Whisky of the Year (highest score during the competition) gets rewarded with the Golden Barrel Trophy.

The Macallan Unveils First Ever Estate Expression – Scotch Whisky News

The Macallan1

Macallan Estate

The Macallan Unveils First Ever Estate Expression

A Whisky Maker’s Tribute To Home and Heritage

To celebrate its iconic home and rich character, The Macallan presents Estate – an exceptional new whisky containing rare spirit distilled with barley grown on the Easter Elchies estate.

A rich and complex whisky with a remarkably long finish, The Macallan Estate was created by our Whisky Makers to celebrate the single malt’s peerless provenance and heritage.

The Macallan Estate represents a unique opportunity to experience a single malt containing spirit made from precious home-grown barley from Easter Elchies estate, which is distilled just once a year over the course of a single week. Before the release of The Macallan Estate, this spirit was limited to the most exclusive and sought-after releases of The Macallan.

The 485-acre Easter Elchies estate is set within the legendary Speyside region of Scotland, where The Macallan has been creating extraordinary single malts since 1824. Its carefully tended barley fields are located on the banks of the River Spey, overlooked by the new award-winning distillery.

The Macallan distillery, which was inspired by Scotland’s undulating hills and cut into the slope of the land to complement its Spey Valley setting, opened its doors to the public in June 2018.

Displaying a warm chestnut hue, The Macallan Estate exudes aromas of wood spice and orange oil. The sweet, subtle hint of citrus acts as the perfect counterbalance to the traditional sherried richness associated with distinctive single malts of The Macallan.

“The Easter Elchies estate lies within the legendary Speyside region of Scotland, a place of timeless natural beauty, and a place that The Macallan is proud to call home,” said Sarah Burgess, Whisky Maker for The Macallan. “With its wonderful sweet citrus hints and warming wood spice, The Macallan Estate is a rich, satisfying and complex spirit that pays homage to the fertile Speyside lands where The Macallan is located and celebrates the unrivalled craftsmanship for which we have been known since 1824.”

Presented in an elegant gift box featuring landscape-inspired designs, The Macallan Estate packaging reflects the natural stones found on the estate and includes an inlay of slate with every bottle, along with photography of the estate’s impressive barley fields on the banks of the River Spey. The Macallan Estate will be available in the U.S. market and select global markets starting this June for a suggested retail price of $250.

Tasting Notes:

Color: Conker, chestnut hue

Aroma: Warm, comforting and homely notes of cinnamon. Wood spice and orange oil, opening into dried fruits with a sweet lemon, banana and caramel.

Palate: Soft and warming with wood spice, opening into a dry oak flavor spiked with candied raisins and fresh fig. Moving into a sweet fresh orange and delicate fresh citrus.

Finish: A sweet citrus twist.

ABV: 43%

About The Macallan

Founded in 1824 in the heart of Speyside, The Macallan was one of the first distilleries in Scotland to be legally licensed. Since then it has built a reputation as one of the world’s finest single malt whiskies.  The story of The Macallan is built on the Six Pillars, each influencing the whisky in its own distinct way.  From the spiritual home of Easter Elchies House; curiously small stills giving richness to the pure spirit; finest cut or the best of the best of the distillation, to exceptional oak casks which account for up to 80% of the final flavor in the whisky; natural color and finally peerless spirit, The Macallan itself.

Wood sits at the heart of The Macallan. The vital contributing influences of Spain, North America and Scotland, together with true mastery, set it apart from the rest.

      Port Askaig Is Celebrating Its 10th Anniversary, And To Commemorate They’ve Released This Limited Expression! – Scotch Whisky News

      Impex13

      Celebrate Port Askaig’s 10th anniversary with this very special dram!

      “ImpEx has enjoyed our long standing relationship with Elixir and Port Askaig since it’s successful US launch.  We are so excited to be a part of these amazing new offerings for US Consumers.  The care and time that goes into each Port Askaig offering is what really sets it apart from its mainstream competitors and has earned it the multiple awards it has received both in the US and abroad.  These new expressions are sure to please.”

      ~ Sam Filmus, President, ImpEx Beverages

      Port Askaig

      PORT ASKAIG 10 YEAR OLD

      To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the launch of Port Askaig’s series of Islay Single Malts, Elixir Distillers is introducing a special limited-edition, 10-year-old bottling. This whisky has been matured in both ex-Bourbon casks and ex-Sherry butts – selected from a distillery close to the village of Port Askaig – giving a careful balance of peat, fruit, and oak. It particularly shines at a higher strength, and has been bottled at a generous 55.85% ABV, which also happens to be the geographical latitude of Port Askaig itself.

      Nose: Smoke is immediately apparent: burnt matchsticks and the embers from a coal fire. Dry sawdust on a carpenter’s floor. Then the sweetness: streaky bacon stacked high on pancakes drizzled with heather honey, alongside banana bread, ginger ale, and under-ripe apricots.

      Palate: A bold maritime peat rolls around the palate, coming and going like waves on the shore. Salt-crusted rye bread, extra virgin olive oil, roasted butternut squash, Chinese five-spice, and a salad of apples and fresh samphire. Smoldering juniper branches and white pepper follow, with a glass of crisp aperitif wine.

      Finish: Lingering wet ashes, bags of dried orchard fruit, thyme, and grilled lemons. Finally, some of the five-spice comes back – star anise and fennel.

      Distilled: 2008
      Age: 10 Years
      Matured in ex-Bourbon casks and ex-Sherry butts
      10,000 bottles produced

      We’ll be letting you know about some ancient Islays!  You won’t want to miss it.

      Thanks again for being part of our family and enjoying these fine whiskies with us!

      Awards Keeping Coming For Distell – Scotch Whisky News

      Distell

      Awards Keeping Coming For Distell

      International spirits producer, Distell, has received global recognition for its Scotch Whisky collection at this year’s International Spirits Challenge (ISC) and The Scotch Whisky Masters. The portfolio received 33 awards in total with Islay’s most northerly distillery, Bunnahabhain, taking home 19 accolades including Double Gold for its 25 Year Old from ISC.

      These latest wins come on the back of a successful period for Distell, having collected 28 awards this year and the business recently crowned as ‘Overall Distiller of the Year’ at the Icons of Whisky Awards.

      Now in its 24th year, the ISC is the premier event in promoting outstanding quality spirits from across the globe and is regarded as one of the most respected and influential spirits competitions in the world. It received more than 1,700 entries from 70 countries, which were judged by 50 esteemed spirits experts.

      New for ISC 2019 is the Double Gold Award, awarded to the Bunnahabhain 25 Year Old. Positioned higher than a Gold Medal, the new Double Gold Award is a special showcase for brands which achieved exceptional scores in the blind tasting assessment. The 25 Year Old is the super-premium member of Bunnahabhain’s core range and is 100% sherry matured.

      Bunnahabhain Distillery received further praise from The Scotch Whisky Masters. From 350 entries, only 12 Masters were awarded this year with Bunnahabhain An Cladach and Bunnahabhain Toiteach A Dhà scooping two of the top awards. Toiteach A Dhà, meaning smoky two in Scots Gaelic, is described as a sequel to the original peaty paradox. To achieve a Masters in the awards, whiskies need to score over 90% from all judges.

      The latest addition to the Bunnahabhain core range, Stiùireadair, brought home a Gold award in the same competition. Stiùireadair, pronounced Stew-Rah-Dur and meaning ‘Helmsman’ in Scots Gaelic, pays homage to the distillery’s nautical heritage and shoreline location which creates a whisky with a distinctive coastal character.

      Bunnahabhain’s World Traveller Exclusive Range received recognition at the ISC, with Eirigh Na Greine and An Cladach winning gold and silver respectively. The third World Traveller Exclusive, Crauch Mhona, was also awarded gold at The Scotch Whisky Masters.

      This news follows the announcement of a three year refurbishment programme at Bunnahabhain as Distell invest £10.5m in an extensive upgrade and refresh of the iconic distillery. As part of the works, a number of the original buildings will be carefully restored giving them a new lease of life, whilst others will be removed and relocated to create more space, allowing better operational flow across the site and to enhance the experience for visitors to the distillery. 

      Derek Scott, Brand Director for Malts at Distell International, said: 

      “We are delighted to have so many of our brands recognised by these prestigious competitions. The results speak for themselves and come hot on the heels of a raft of honours for our world class spirits across the collection. 

      “We are particularly proud to have Bunnahabhain’s portfolio of malts recognised, reinforcing the passion and commitment from the distillery team to deliver internationally renowned products. We have ambitious plans for the distillery and look forward to sharing updates on the ongoing refurbishment programme over the coming year.”
