I see the Tesco 12 year old Highland malt has won the gold best in class award in the single highland malt 12 year category at the 2008 International Wine & Spirit Competition.
See IWSC site for details.
Anyone know what is in the bottle, interestingly the IWSC website lists the producer as Whyte & Mackay. I had read in the past that it was Old Pulteney 12 that was in the Tesco bottle. Coincidentally Old Pulteney 12 picked up a Gold in the same category this year.
Frank, I had heard before that it was Old Pulteney in the Tesco Highland malt bottle, i guess it cant be unless Inver House Distillers was taken over by Whyte & Mackay.
I noticed on the IWSC site the winner of Gold (Best in Class) Islay Pure Malt 10 year old was Sainsbury's Islay Malt 10 year old which is on offer at the moment for £13.99, i think i will be picking up a bottle of this to try.
Frank AFAIK Whtye & Mackays owns 2 malt whisky brands; Isle of Jura and The Dalmore, therefore if you consider Jura as a Island malt then there is a good chance it is Dalmore in the Tesco highland malt bottle.
I picked up a bottle of Tescos Highland malt on Friday and have been very pleasantly surprised. A lovely fruity/orangey malt ( mmm is it Dalmore as mentioned above, i think it could be or a very close relative). Definitely worth a try if you like the Dalmore style of malt and at half the price of a Dalmore.
