A mouth-watering competition was set up in the Whisky Awards. Eight of Speyside's finest malts battle it out in the eagerly anticipated annual contest. The expert judging panel will soon have the task of whittling down distillery entries at a blind tasting event this January but the power to determine the overall winners will be handed over to Festival visitors who can taste all the shortlisted entries at a series of Roving Awards Tasting and Judging events to be held during the Festival.
The whisky produced on Speyside is among the best in the world – deciding which entries are worthy of making the final is an almost impossible task. James Campbell, Festival Chairman
