About the International Spirits Challenge
The International Spirits Challenge is a competition held every year in the UK, the home of Scotch whisky. In the Whisky divisions, medals are awarded after a blind testing conducted by about 10 testers. These testers are blenders, distillery managers and other industry professionals, and they perform sensory inspections on each of the over 500 whiskies submitted for judging from around the world. The ISC is regarded as an authoritative arena for judging the quality of the entries by the exquisite sensory skills of the panel of whisky-making professionals.
