Dear Whisky friends,
First of all, rating the whisky is very subjective thing. There is no discussion about the taste.
But, I am wondering about some ratings for some drams. On whiskybase we have a range of 100 points in 4 different categories. Most of you guys seem to believe that a whisky with e.g. 60 points is not drinkable. If you use the whole range of 100 points, you can find good whiskies with 60 or 65 points. The best of using the whole range is, there is enough space for real good stuff. Too much whiskies who should rated with around 70 points, are rated with 85 or more.
Again, it is a very own rating. It belongs to your taste.
The sense of having a rating system for whisky and a possible objective one too, is, to rate good whiskies under 70 points. Some of you guys who probable tasted only a few whiskies, can`t overview the possibilities real good stuff has. So let us discuss a approximate objective rating system, who shows the whole range.
I am looking forward to your replies.
With kind regards,
