Glenfiddich 19 Year Old Age of Discovery Bourbon Cask: An inviting aroma of sweet toffee and tart orange marmalade reveal confectionary notes of vanilla and caramel balanced with a spicy depth from nutmeg, cardamom, and leather. It is this masterful pairing of vibrant notes as contradictory as they are complimentary that won it Gold Outstanding in Single Malt Scotch at the International Wine and Spirits Competition.
The House of Hazelwood 21 Year Old: The award-winning Scotch masterfully balances spice, wood, and fruit in a manner so distinct that the International Wine and Spirits Competition awarded it Gold for Scotch – Deluxe Blend. The nose of sherried fruit and woody spices gives way to a nutty body of date and toasted almond, finished with a touch of cinnamon. The stunning art deco-inspired decanter adorned with pistachio green and reflective gold are a perfect compliment to the amber scotch blend within, making it as pleasing to the eyes as it is to the palette.
Chivas Regal Extra: Chivas Regal Extra won Gold in the International Wine and Spirits Competition’s Scotch Deluxe Blend category for its new take on a classic scotch. Its aroma draws you in with notes of oak and sherry; reminiscent to the Spanish Oloroso sherry casks it was aged in. Upon first sip, the warm sweetness of marzipan and caramel are made even more alluring when paired with cinnamon and ginger, while vanilla and almond soften the finish.
Aberlour A’Bunadh Batch #58: Notes clove and coffee add a spicy depth, while chicory adds a woody finish unique to this award-winning catch batch. Batch 58 of Aberlour’s famed A’Bunadh range is aged in Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks, imparting rich flavors of raisin and dark chocolate. The complexity of flavor and the higher ABV won Aberlour A’Bunadh Batch #58 the International Wine and Spirits Competition’s Cask Strength Scotch Whiskey Trophy.
Ballantine's 21 Year Old: The sumptuous flavor and creamy texture of Ballantine's 21 was awarded Gold Outstanding in Scotch – Deluxe Blend at the International Wine and Spirits Competition. On the nose, Ballantine's 21 Year Old calls to mind jam, apple, and soft florals. Rich, spicy flavors of liquorice, barley, and heather make it smooth until the last sip.
