Mick, I'm most pleased you chose a good Islay malt to adorn your trophy

Well done Mick, on two counts. Firstly on your very first trophy, and secondly (and most importantly!) your impeccable taste as far as Malt Whisky is concerned.

Congratulations on your well-earned award, Mandy and Mick!  I had hoped to be in position to take some 'presentation of awards' images, but yet another conversation prevented me getting into a suitable place before the awards began, so, unfortunately, I missed your award Mick - and my position proved totally wrong for the other presentations as well, but I will post the results in case some are of interest?

What a terrific day you had, Mick and Mandy too,of course.   Many congratulations on your success... how exciting to win that lovely trophy .... I am delighted to raise a toast to you here! Well done, and good luck for more successes in the future....... we have been lucky to see your progress from your first tentative entries to this level of accomplishment in a short time... what better example cold there be to anyone out there who is tempted but a bit anxious ?
Mick's right, join in, have some fun and learn a lot in the process.... it's pretty painless... apart from the early morning on show days! 8)

Very interesting report and an insight as to how the judging is conducted. Something I was curious about, as a newcomer to shows, as its done behind closed doors
