Looking across multiple categories, from blended to single grain, a wide range of whiskeys were awarded the top accolade of Master medal for their quality.

The individual scores of each entrant have not been revealed, however these are 10 of the highest rated medalists in the competition, in no particular order.

While some expressions are not standard priced, our judges have given each Irish whiskey listed here the seal of approval for offering excellent quality within their respective price categories.
