I try to keep the scoring as simple as possible. Each dram is scored out of 50 points which is, roughly speaking, broken down into three categories…

Smell = 20 points
Taste = 20 points
Value for money = 10 points.

The last category was important to me as I have a particular focus on affordable whisky here and want to highlight quality that comes at a good price. Having said that, there are times a dram is just so good that you can forgive it being a little expensive so these categories can become a little flexible from time to time.

Each whisky reviewed is logged in the ‘hit list’, giving a convenient ‘at-a-glance’ impression of how they have fared against each other.

**** Please bear in mind though, all scores are just my opinion, and should never be taken as fact. Just because I like something doesn’t mean you will agree. I try to be objective and unbiased but naturally my personal preferences will seep through. Please enjoy the reviews for what they are intended to be – one man’s view of the world of whisky.
