About Bademeister:

My Tasting Ratings

95-100 Once in Livetime Experience
90-94 Exceptional (buy !)
85-89 Very Good (would re-buy)
80-84 Good (would possibly buy)
75-79 Average (OK but would not buy again)
70-74 Fair (not my taste)
60-69 Bad (would not drink again)
< 60 Disgusting ( do avoid !)

My Whisky rating is based on my enjoyment of a dram. It's representing my very subjective taste profile. In other words how much I did like a taste of a Whisky. My rate doesn't necessarily say how well made or complex a dram is. Because I tasted exceptional well made malts which regardless do not meet my taste. And had very good malt experiences from uncomplicated drams. I also try not to take the price of a Whisky into the account of my score.

A lot people do rate most of the Whisky between 80 and 92. That range feels too narrow for me to differentiate. For that reasons the range of my tasted Whisky has a wider range and is mostly between 70 and 95. 

I do score 70-80 for an average enjoyable experience. That is far from a bad Whisky. To me a bad experience is 65's and below. 80 is my benchmark for a good malt and where the fun to me begins with. And 90+are outstanding malt experiences.
