Malt Maniacs Awards December 2008

Malt Maniac Award for Amrut 2009
Source:Malt Maniacs

The Malt Maniacs Awards for 2008 have just been released and there is another big medal haul for Blackadder. Our sister company Clydesdale Original has also done well.

In 2005 Blackadder won the Supreme Sherry Cask Award for the Best Sherry Cask Whisky of the year for one of our Sherry Cask Blairfindy bottlings; in 2006 Blackadder won the Love-It-Or-Hate It Award for Blackadder Smoking Islay; and in 2007 Blackadder Raw Cask Sherry Cask Glen Grant 36 year old 1970 (bottled 2006) from cask ref: 7216 is the winner of the Supreme Sherry Cask Award in the Ultra Premium section.

This year has seen Blackadder brands claim One Silver and six Bronze medals and the Clydesdale Original company has also received One Silver, together with three Bronze medals.

The most satisfying award is the Blackadder Raw Cask Glen Grant 1970. Sadly there were only 173 bottles from this supreme cask of Blackadder Raw Cask Glen Grant making it a very rare treasure indeed, however, such is the high quality of Blackadder whiskies as evidenced by the awards issued by the very independently-minded Malt Maniacs that you can be sure that there are other gems waiting out there for you to discover!

Because there are now so many entries in the Malt Maniacs awards competition Blackadder chose to only enter three of our favourite whiskies this year. We were thinking of the Malt Maniacs’ taste buds! Three was the right number, however, as all three were, in fact, award winners! Blackadder’s other two winning whiskies were:

Raw Cask Glenugie 24yo 1981/2006 61.8%, ref. 5515 (552 bottles) and

Raw Cask Rosebank 15yo 1990/2006 59.5%, ref: 1522 (294 Bottles)

Blackadder has now entered whiskies in this competition for three years with the following results.

2005. Five whiskies entered. Awards: 1, Gold medals: 1, Silver medals: 4,
2006. Eight whiskies entered. Awards: 1, Silver medals: 6, Bronze medals: 2
2007. Three whiskies entered. Awards 1, Gold medals: 1, Bronze medals: 2

This makes a total of 16 whiskies entered, 3 Awards: 2 Gold Medals; 10 Silver Medals and 4 Bronze Medals.

Every whisky entered by Blackadder in this competition for the past three years has won a medal of excellence!
