(Sorry Matt, I didn't notice this in your original post)
But why so late?
Surely on a UK-based forum this should be done at an earlier time in the day when we can see the news without having to wait until the following day!

The simple answer I presume is the fact that the awards are announced at a special Icons of Whiksy Dinner which is held the night before WL London opens. After a few "wee drams" I expect the acceptance speeches to take on Oscarian proportions and 11:30PM is the earliest time that Matt can be sure all the awards have been given out. Nothing worse than Icons checking what they've won on their blackberries before the buff envelopes have been opened.

Wasn't the American Icon of Whisky enough - worthy winner though (just need to learn to use the right type of grain!)
Also interesting to note what effect the new voting system has on the geographic balance of winners.
For those who missed the linky - the (real ) Whisky nominees / winners are here:
