Was anyone else a bit disappointed by the selection of Diageo as "Distillery" of the year on Whiskey Advocate?

Putting aside what one might think of Diageo in general they are a multinational beverage company and not a distiller as I would be inclined to define them. I get what the article was saying but would still like to see the pick be a single true distillery and not a corporate entity that runs multiple distilleries.

Perhaps John will stop by at some point and offer some insight.
