There was an article either in Malt Advocate or Whisky Magazine about this. Almost everyone who enters wins a medal of some sort.

It all depends on how many whiskies are entered. If only one for each category are then it has a lesser value but if they evaluate 500 whiskies then it becomes more reasonable. There are an awful lot of blends & grains on the list, I'd like to know the total number or whiskies judged before I become all steamed up. Anyway I don't buy whiskies based on their rankings in any case.
