Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival Whisky Awards remains the only whisky awards competition in the world that places the power to determine the winning drams in the hands of the public.
Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival would like to thank Forsyths of Rothes for their very generous sponsorship of the Whisky Awards 2018.
Renowned family business Forsyths, the company responsible for building many of the pot stills in which Speyside malts are distilled, generously support the Whisky Awards.
In a blind tasting, our expert panel of nine judges, including whisky writers, industry representatives and specialist retailers, selected two finalists from each Whisky Awards category.
