The Finalists 2022

Following the challenging blind tasting of Speyside’s finest malts, our expert judging panel selected eight finalists for the 2022 Spirit of Speyside Whisky Awards.

The final say of course, rests with our Festival and International voters who take the opportunity to become involved in the judging process. The judging events will be held at various international locations and we would encourage all Speyside Whisky Enthusiasts to become involved in the judging where possible.

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.
