    The other MA awards

    Just so we don't focus entirely on the controversial Pioneer award, the following are the rest of the (North)
    American Whiskey-related awards from MA this year:

    Best Buys: Evan Williams & Very Old Barton BiB
    American Whiskey of the Year: The entire BTAC
    Canadian Whiskey of the Year: 40 Creek Confederation Oak
    Industry Leader of the Year: Glencairn Crystal
    Lifetime Achievement: Fritz Maytag, Angelo Lucchesi (and Evan Cattanach of Diageo)
    And Distillery of the Year: Heaven Hill

    Any thoughts?

    My thoughts
    Best Buys: Elijah Craig 12 takes that category for me
    American Whiskey of the Year: "The entire BTAC." - A fine choice, but they should have picked only one this year so they could pick another one from the collection next year.

    Canadian Whiskey of the Year: Canada is America's hat.
    Industry Leader of the Year: "Glencairn Crystal" - Love the glasses. I'll stand behind this one

    I've got no problem with any of the awards.

    Yeah, good choices. It is a little saddening though: American bourbon/whiskies did so well at this year's awards, I feel like next year will be dominated by our friends from across the pond (or the great Northern territory some call "Canada").

    Very disappointed with John's pick in "Top Ten New Whiskies". I don't think 2010 WLW deserved a spot on that list. A glaring omission of the 2010 Parkers Heritage 10 year wheater that pretty much every one here(including myself) loves.

    I agree, Parker's should have been on there. I think the 4R Ltd. Ed. Small Batch should have been there too.

    I loved it too, CaptainQ. As you can see here, I rated it a 93--one point from being in our Top 10. So we're really just splitting hairs here, my friend.

    I'm also available John but my fee will be exorbitant. I figure if I charge a lot folks might think I'm worth it.
