Can you tell the difference between a Bruichladdich and a Balvenie?  How about between an Oban and an Octomore? If so, test, tempt, and delight your senses at the biggest whisky competition in Australia as the Australian Malt Whisky Tasting Championship is back for a huge, fun night in 2018.

Unlike any other competition on earth, this momentous event will see someone crowned the Australian Malt Whisky Tasting Champion based on their sensory prowess. This amazing event features the whisky competition, a whisky after-party, cocktail bar, SMWS Single Cask bar and more...all on one night at the incredible Australia Museum, Sydney, Australia.
