Malt Maniacs Awards 2011 – Results are announced

MM_logoDecember 1st and the Malt Maniac awards are upon us again. This year, a lot of new judges have been added and top three maniacs (being Johannes, Serve, and  Davin) did not take part in the voting.

Not very surprising, the Gold Medalists are all very old, expensive whiskies , most of us will never have a chance to sample, let alone buy…

Good effort guys.
