Awards Milano Whisky Festival 2019

 In the hall of fame 
DOUBLE GOLD for THREE years in a row!

 

 

Nothing could prepare us for the sheer scale of this year’s Milan Whisky Festival: twice the space, and almost twice the exhibitors. At its 14th edition, the main Italian whisky event is drawing more and more people every year, and even the organization was surprised by the crowd of visitors. It’s a good sign for whisky in Italy to finally have an event with such a large following.

For us at Wilson & Morgan, the sense of exhilaration was heightened by serving so many drams, by our usual lively masterclass… and by the joy in receiving so many awards. Because this year we surpassed any expectations… 3 medals in the four categories in which we were running: it’s the THIRD year in a row in which Wilson & Morgan has won 2 Gold medals at Milan Whisky Festival, and this sets quite a record!  

 

Two GOLD medals went to two of our Special Releases that we are really proud of:

Glen Elgin 30yo 1988/2019 51.1% (Single Cask Category)

a golden malt of great sweetness and complexity, a rich and mature explosion of tropical fruits and honeyed intensity

Tobermory 23yo 1996/2019 58.7% ‘Tokaji Finish’ (Under 25 Category)

the best Tobermory we have ever released, with the wild character of the Isle of Mull tamed by age and by a delicately fruity finale 

 But let’s not forget the SILVER medal won by one of our more affordable bottlings, the sherry bomb that is 

Macduff 2006/2019 57.1% ‘1st Fill Sherry Wood - 100 U.K. Proof’!

The exact opposite in style of our two other medals, it has charmed the jury and the visitors with its uncompromising winey intensity.
