This here I am not sure what to say. I have submitted the Tirado Gold, Double Gold and the Caribe to a few of the competitions.
Look for the competitions that limits the biases. Among those two have great reputations. The San Francisco World Spirit and The New York international Spirit Competitions. Getting a GOLD medal there will separate you from the competition in your area. However , I am neutral on the others. The others are definitely cheaper but their weight in the industry is minimal. Now there are soo many competitions the their significance have been minimize. So look at your budget and chose one of the larger ones for exposure.
The notes that they provide on your products are definitely helpful.
