IWSC Trophy Winner: Balvenie 14yo Caribbean Cask

Mitte letzter Woche erreichte mich die folgende Information.

Der 14-jährige Caribbean Cask von The Balvenie wurde auf der diesjährigen IWSC (International Wine and Spirits Competition) als bester Single Malt Scotch Whisky 15 Years & Under ausgezeichnet. 
(Der Caribbean Cask war mein Whisky des Monats Mai 2017) 

Hier die ursprüngliche Nachricht von Sam Simmons (Global Brand Ambassador). 


Ambassadors and Friends, 


Delighted to announce that The Balvenie Caribbean Cask Aged 14 Years was awarded an IWSC Trophy for Best Single Malt Scotch Whisky 15 Years & Under 


For context, to really understand this achievement: 

    • there are only FOUR trophies awarded in ALL of Single Malt Scotch and only ONE trophy awarded in this age category. 
    • Judges are presented with hundreds of malt whiskies divided into regions, abv (if over 46%), and age over several days. 
    • The highest scoring in each category IF above 90 points is awarded GOLD Best in Class 
  • Each GOLD Best in Class winner is then put forward to further judging against its peers in FOUR categories: NAS, 15 and Under, Over 15 Years, and Cask Strength 

To have been awarded The Trophy for Single Malt Scotch Whisky – 15 Years & Under is a HUGE achievement. It means defeating every market-leading malt (you know who I mean) as well as every esoteric distillery or award-bait single cask offering by the Independent bottlers. 


So #raiseadram, and TELL EVERYONE
