And the winner is ...

balvenie 17 years old 'peated cask' 10cl sampleLast week we had the pleasure of sampling the forthcoming release from the famous Speyside distillery at Balvenie - the 17 years old 'Peated Cask'. We decided to offer the chance to win one of the 10cl sample bottles of this new whisky that William Grant & Sons, the owners of Balvenie, gave us. We thank them for this sample. The idea of the competition was to create the longest word possible from the letters BALVENIEPEATEDCASK and we have had a great response and increased our vocabulary over the last two days! We both thank everyone who entered and hope that you enjoyed the challenge.

The winner of the competition is 'Fernando', who submitted the impressive 12 letter word 'ASCLEPIADEAN'. Can you please contact us at so we can send out your sample?

We had numerous vocabulary-expanding 11 letter entries. A special mention must also go to 'Ed' who impressed us by submitting four different words in a sentence! We have found an extra sample of something different in our cupboard, so 'Ed' please get in touch if you are interested.
