The pictures present the wide range of the relished whisky and that was the conception for the meeting. It was not held in specific outline under the mark of e.g. whisky from a specific distillation company or one region nor one vintage. Different botting, from various places, from different vintage -
very wide range, which at times caused that jumping from one to another very different whisky, seemed extremely surprising sensation in comparison to the next one tested.

The overall points determined what tested best to us and as a result on the podium climbed:
