The award ceremony was held in London on March 21.

Whisky Magazine has released the result of The World Whiskies Awards 2013. First held in 2007, the wards have searched for the very best whiskies in the world. This time more than 300 whiskies battled it out during three intensive blind tasting rounds.  Suntory Hibiki 21 Years Old championed in the category of blended whisky. It is evaluated as an elegant whisky that all of the aroma, the taste and the aftertaste are in harmony. Suntory Hibiki 21 Years Old won the awards for the 3rd time in consecutive of 2010 and 2011. Ardbeg Galileo carries off the top single malt title, The World's Best Single Malt Whisky, returning the crown from Japan to Scotland. Mr. Rob Allanson, editor of Whisky Magazine, comments "a malt that has gone where no malt has gone before."  In 2012 the winner was Suntory Yamazaki 25 Years Old.
