About branneman:

I buy all my whisky to enjoy, all my bottles are open! I'm not a collector, nor do I sell.

During tastings:

  • I never rate the colour, because too much whiskies have Caramel added anyway (E150a).
  • I use the Flavour Wheel for Whisky from Agroscope to help me determine the tastes.
  • I use a rating system which resembles the one described in Michael Jackson's Malt Whisky Companion to come up with a number.

Reference for the ratings:

94-96 — Perfect — Close to perfection
90-93 — Superb — Truly outstanding malts
86-89 — First-class — Recommended 'must try'
82-85 — Above average — The 'better' stuff
75-81 — Average — Decent but uneventful malts
65-74 — Palatable — Whiskies with minor flaws
60-64 — Poor — Whiskies with serious flaws
50-59 — Undrinkable neat — Only acceptable as a mixer
≤ 49    — Undrinkable — Disinfectant a.k.a. 'the abyss'
