Medals
Malt Maniacs Awards - Medals

For your browsing convenience, I've prepared a list of some MM Awards medal winners.
This list only shows a selection of a few recent winners in the three categories; you
can find details on the pages with the bronze medals, silver medals & gold medals.
(Please note that this is an 'archive' website that covers the 1997-2011 period.)

In recent years, there may have been a little 'score inflation' - some of the new,
younger jurors on our team might have been a little easier to impress than the old
coots, but any medal winning whisky is still worthy of our approval. So, scroll down
for a selection of highlights, or check out the complete results for the 2003, 2004,
2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 editions of our whisky competition.

MM Archives - Home

The list below shows some recent medal winners, arranged alphabetically within
each 'medal' bracket (gold, silver & bronze). Within our whisky scoring system
we used to use a theoretical average score of 75 points (that's for Scotch single
malts), so a particular whisky had to be significantly 'better than average' for it to
reach the minimum score of 80 points that's required to win a (bronze) medal.

When we organised the first edition of our competition in 2003 a relatively small percentage of
bottles in the competition actually won a medal or award, but in recent years participants realised
that they would have to submit their very best work if they wanted to win.
Some producers even stopped participating in our amateur competition altogether...

A bronze medal in the Malt Maniacs Awards (a score between 80 and 84 points) can be
translated as 'recommendable'. An entry with a score between 85 and 89 points earns
a silver medal and is considered 'highly recommendable', while top scoring whiskies get
the gold medals that are reserved for 'the best of the best' whiskies (90 points or more).
Most of the medal winners and award winners in the list below are linked to additional
comments and tasting notes on the 'annual' page. Please consult the pages for 2003,
2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 for more competition details.

And these were some gold, silver and bronze medal winners, ranked by 'metal'.
The 'results' pages for 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 show that year's winners, ranked by average score.
Visit the Malt Maniacs Matrix or the Malt Maniacs Monitor for our scores for thousands of other whiskies.
You can find an overview of a few (recently released) recommendable malts in the MaltMenu.
 

All Bronze Medal Winners
Recent Medal Winners

Please note that, within each 'metal bracket' in the list below, all winners are listed
alphabetically, not from 'best' to 'worst'. Because the difference between a thin silver
medal (scoring 85 points) and a very thick one (89 points) is considerable, the full
'Best-to-Worst' lists on the annual awards pages should give you a much better
impression of a particular whisky's overall performance in that particular year.

Anyway, you're very welcome to check out the all the details about the conditions
and requirements of our little whisky competition on the rules & regulations page.
And don't forget that the Malt Maniacs Awards only covers a small part of our work.
The matrix and monitor provide another perspective on scores while you can find
more than 1000 whisky articles in our archives. Part 1 of the archives covers 1997
until 2006, while part 2 of the archives deals with the period between 2007-2011.
Events from 2012 onwards are covered on the new Malt Maniacs site by Oliver.
