WDTS: Whisky-distilleries Tasting Sessions:
The blind tasting sessions

Session 2013-03

results of the third session in 2013

Dear Whisky,

The results of the third WDTS session for this year (blind tasting sessions organized by the forum whisky distilleries.info) are published. Please have a look on the results
Again, we tasted six whiskys blind under the favorite conditions of the tasters: at ease at home and at their own pace.
Bottles having participated in this session all come for the majority from independent bottlers. We have rated this time an official bottling (it's a long time we did not get any official bottle to taste... But this Glendronach has not been sent by the distillery or the importer. One participant of the WDTS has taken the initiative to buy tis bottle and to propose it for the tasting. Thanks to him.
For this session the 6 bottles were:
  • Bowmore, 16 years, sherry finish (Wilson & Morgan)
  • Glenturret, 34 years (Master of Malt)
  • Dalmore, L'Esprit Whisky, 16 yhears (Whisky & Rhum)
  • Arran,  16 years (Master of Malt)
  • Glendronach 15 years Revival, official (proposed by a participant of the WDTS)
  • Benriach, 1991, bourbon barrel (Malts of Scotland)
A big thank you to all the producers, importers and bottlers as without them,  WDTS adventure would not exist.
The results are published here: http://www.whisky-distilleries.info/WhiskyWDTS/2013-03/index_EN.shtml. This page provides the overall results. For detailed notes of each of the bottles tasted, simply click on the name of the bottle in the table.
I hope you enjoy reading and hope to come back to you soon with the results of the third session for 2013 which will be launched shortly.

The results of the second session WDTS-Rum will be published around  June 15 , while the fourth whisky session will be launched soon.

And do not forget...: In addition to the blind tastings of whisky, a series of sessions dedicated to rum is planned. The second is currently running.
Notice to rum producers who are interested in the opinion of whisky drinkers do not hesitate to participate ...

WDTS heavily rely on the producers who agree to send one or more bottles.
In exchange, they can take the advice of tasters. The concept is quite unique WDTS: regular publication of six whiskies tasted by more than 20 participants. The sessions are completely blind.
This publication is done on a site that is much frequented  by whisky lovers... 

Producers, do not hesitate to participate. For practical questions, do not hesitate to contact me (info@whisky-distilleries.info)
