Tasting and scoring around 200 different whiskies over the course of a few weeks is tough work, but the Malt Maniacs make this sacrifice every autumn. The results of this year's Malt Maniacs Whisky Awards have been released, and with just 9 gold medal winners, represent the best of the best. Longtime Malt Maniac Davin de Kergommeaux puts this year's winners into perspective. In the news, whisky competitions anyone can win, Glenfiddich's plans to auction a bottle of 50-year-old whisky for charity, celebrating the Macallan, and a look at whisky from the philosophical point of view with Marcus Adams, one of the editors of the new book "Whisky and Philosophy."
