Read what the experts say below.

The IWSC is more than a competition. It is a global wine and spirits community, focused on people and expertise.

Gold 95 points – Paloma Royal Brackla 11 year old

“A beautiful aromatic display on the nose, reminiscent of an old cellar, leading us in with sweet notes of sundried raisin, spiced malt, and nutty, toasted almonds. The palate delivers a burst of honeyed dates, balanced by bright tones of orange bitters. Round, rich, and incredibly juicy on the finish. Sublime!”

Silver 93 points – Bodega Series Teaninich 15 year old

“Tropical pineapple and coconut dance gracefully with a sweet floral touch and the palate is scented with soft oak and spice.”

Silver 92 points – Bodega Series Blair Athol 15 year old

“Sweetly scented vanilla and floral notes on the nose with a complex and fruity palate with elegant warmth on the length.”

Silver 90 points – Wine Series Blair Athol 14 year old Tawny Port Release 4

“Delicious wine-like notes with attractive port characters, chill, and deep wood spice. Rich fruitcake and red fruits captivate the palate before a satisfyingly sweet conclusion, which lingers beautifully.”

Bronze 89 points – Paloma Craigellachie 13 year old

“Sherry blends herbal and green notes with a hint of wine. Palate is rich and rounded, featuring green leaves, chocolate, and spice.” 

Bronze 87 points – Bodega Series Linkwood 15 year old

“The aroma features grain and malt sweetness, leading to a palate with creamy, chocolatey notes. Savoury bakery flavours with a unique umami touch.”

Well done to all of the other winners and thank you to the team of judges for recognising our hard work and dedication into producing these delicious whiskies.
