Luxury Spirits Grand Master 2020

Number of medals: 5

The Luxury Spirits Masters seeks to assess spirits that fall into the super‐premium and ultra‐premium price brackets. As the judges sampled the Single Malt Scotch Whisky – Ultra Premium flight, there was a standout producer: The Glenmorangie Company.

With a five‐strong medal haul, The Glenmorangie Company is the Luxury Spirits Grand Master 2020. The Scotch whisky producer was awarded two Masters, one for Glenmorangie Grand Vintage 1996 and a second for Arrrrrrrdbeg!

Three Golds were presented to Ardbeg 19 Years Old, Glenmorangie Truffle Oak and Glenmorangie Signet. Glenmorangie Grand Vintage 1996 was said to be “beautifully nuanced with tropical fruit, mango, pineapple – rich and complex with plenty to explore”.

Meanwhile, Arrrrrrrdbeg! Islay Scotch whisky was found to have “good intensity” with a bit of “smoke and earthy, dark chocolate”. The judges said that each expression offered a scope of quality options for whisky fans.
