Ultimate Beverage Challenge Awards for 2013

The Ultimate Beverage Challenge award Highland Park, Glenfarclas top honors!

Highland Park 25 has received the Chairman’s Trophy as the best Single Malt Scotch Whisky, when it received an astonishing 100 points! This perfect score beat out even the supremely sublime Highland Park 30,which was awarded 97 points. Of nineteen single malts scoring high enough to earn “Extraordinary, Ultimate Recommendation” by the Ultimate Beverage Challenge judges, five were from Highland Park’s core range of guaranteed age statement expressions. Extraordinary indeed!

Glenfarclas gave a strong showing as well, with four whiskies in the top nineteen.
