Please keep in mind that the Malt Maniacs Awards don't provide a complete overview of the world
wide (malt) whisky market in any given year. For one thing, not all whisky producers participate each
year. And even when they do, they often can't submit their entire portfolio - participants are allowed
to submit only a maximum of three or five bottlings each year. Furthermore, the focus is still mostly on
Scotch single malt whiskies - although we've seen a growing number of grain whiskies in our annual
whisky competition, not to mention participants from Ireland, Japan, Taiwan and even Tasmania.
 
Visit the Malt Maniacs Matrix or the Malt Maniacs Monitor for our scores for thousands of other
whiskies. Those are not always sampled by a dozen different maniacs, but as far as the matrix goes
you'll have the opinions of at least four other whisky lovers to help you decide on possibly purchasing
a particular whisky. If you're more interested in tasting notes than scores, you can find an overview
of a few (recently released) recommendable malts in the MaltMenu or the 'Specials' section of MM.

Bronze Medals
Malt Maniacs Awards - Bronze Medals

Ah, yes.... I'm afraid that this page of BRONZE MEDAL WINNERS in the MM Awards
has suffered from one or our site crashes in the past. I've reconstructed the data
until 2008, but the results for 2009, 2010 and 2011 have not been included here.
Please check out the individual 'annual' pages for the full results for those years.

The hundreds of bronze medal winners in the Malt Maniacs Awards are more
abundant than the silver medal winners and gold medal winners in our annual
whisky competition - but usually much more affordable as well. In fact, one might
argue that any bronze medal winning whisky that sets you back more than fifty
Euro's is overpriced. There simply are plenty of more affordable alternatives.

MM Archives - Home

The 'results' pages for 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 show the medal
and award winners of that particular year, ranked by their average scores. As
such, they give a much better impression of the level of the competition in a
particular year than the list on this page. However, if you want to get a general
feeling of the range, this page lists most bronze medal winners over the years.
