Thank you for sharing your love for whisky by joining our Malt Manila contest. We had so much fun choosing the creative photos shared on social media and we’ve chosen our favorite entries.

The winner of two tickets to the First Annual Malt Manila Whisky Festival is Tara Cabullo @champagnedreams for her Kavalan Solist entry. Whisky is always perceived as one of the most masculine choices at the bar, but its no longer a surprise that a lot of women prefer this spirit. Cheers to Tara and her love for whisky! We’re excited for her to experience Malt Manila on March 31, 2017, from 5 p.m. to 12 midnight where she can mingle with whisky lovers and aficionados for a night of whisky appreciation activities and masterclasses.

Up to last year, whiskey intimated me. Something about it was not for the faint of heart {or nose, or tastebuds}. I reserved whiskey as drink of choice for women whose characters strengthened by time. I did not consider myself as one. Fast forward to now, I've developed a taste for an elusive but hard core liquor. I love whiskey, single malt or blended, because I've found that its notes are ones my tongue can distinguish better than any other. I love that it doesn't intoxicate me and every sip is just like a trip to the casks and country of where it's from. This particular favorite is a Kavalan Solist, dark mouth watering raisin, dried fruit and marzipan notes with a hint of fine coffee palate, hails from Taiwan. 🥃🥃🥃 #kavalan #solist #maltmanila2017 #sınglemalt #drinkmanila #womenandwhiskies

Here are some of our favorite entries from the contest:

I love whiskey because of its earthy flavor profiles that is perfectly paired with spices, like nutmeg and cinnamon, in creating strong and spirit-forward cocktails. I guess it's full-bodied texture is what makes it challenging for mixologists in crafting cocktails that marry well with whiskey's character. "'Knack' on Wood" is a cocktail I made using my all-time favorite whiskey, Johnnie Walker Gold Label. It is a rich, spirit-forward drink with Campari, orange marmalade, lime, agave nectar and cinnamon, shaken and served over ice in a rocks glass and garnished with a cinnamon stick. Whichever way you enjoy drinking your whiskey, drink it with cheers!!! 🍸😉😊 #maltmanila2017 #drinkmanila #modernlibations #cocktailculture #mixologistworld #modernmixology #avalango #perfectserve #bar369 #bartenderdiaries #customcocktails #diageo #diageophilippines #diageoph #johnniewalker #johnniewalkergoldlabel #lovescotch #whiskeylover #scotch #campari
