Singleton of Glen Ord

Diageo’s Singleton of Glen Ord has picked up the Trophy for ‘Best Single Malt, 15 years and under’ at this year’s International Wine & Spirits Challenge..

The judges described the Singleton of Glen Ord 15 year old as: “Wonderfully complex and appealing. Warm and sensual, compiled with a basket of forest fruits and savoury delights. Classic and Chic.”

The Trophy award was the highlight of the night for Diageo, who also picked up Gold Outstanding awards for Lagavulin Distillers Edition, Lagavulin 16 Year Old and Bushmills 21 year old Single Malt Irish Whiskey among their 36 gold and silver medals.

Dr Nick Morgan, Diageo’s Head of Whisky Outreach, said in a media release: “These 36 Gold and Silver Medals are a tribute to the skilled and dedicated men and women who make our whiskies. In a hugely crowded field, the Trophy for the Best Single Malt under 15 years old for The Singleton of Glen Ord 15 year old is a wonderful confirmation of the good taste of our discerning consumers in Asia where this innovative single malt whisky is outperforming the category.

“And it’s also fantastic to see some of our great vibrant blends like Johnnie Walker, Buchanan’s, Bushmills and Windsor pulling in so many Golds and Silvers in this important competition.

“It goes to show that commercial success goes hand in hand with a passion for making the very best whiskies, acknowledged here by impartial and highly qualified professional judges.”
