BiG Awards 2009 are coming soon!!

Wow! So many great whiskies this year and so many great experiences to go with tasting them. However, there is only one awards ceremony that dares to put the 10 best up against each other... Yes, the BiG awards is back for 2009.

This year, competition has been stiff, but we've managed to whittle them down to 10 bottling's which we feel worthy of the accolade of 'Best in Glass 2009'.

The Rules are simple. Each of the nominees are new releases in 2009. Like last year, we'll be putting them all head-to-head for a final tasting to be held somewhere in London in the next 10 days.

We'll be announcing the short list next Monday - then battle shall commence to see which one is the most stand out bottling on the night. No 'Best Islay under 15 years old' or other similar sub-categories- just a simple, outright, pound for pound winner.

Last year's winner was the amazing Karuizawa 1971 bottling, which is now so scarce that grown men have been known to sell their hair for just a small dram of it.

keep 'em peeled for the short list and let us know whether you agree or disagree.
