About lincolnimp:

I live in England  and my favourite distilleries are Brora, Balblair, Glenury Royal, Glenugie, Glenfarclas,  Highland Park and I am also a big fan of Caol Ila. I will try any whisky and do not limit myself, there really is nothing off limits.

Whisky is for drinking not looking at in a bottle on a shelf but I can appreciate a good collection just like anyone else.

Unfortunately in my view whisky is going up in value all the time but sadly quality is not, another reason for sky high prices generally but especially the older bottles are investors who just hoover up what they can find yet have no love of whisky itself.

I am willing to do sample swaps. PM me if you want to see what I have available to swap . I am interested in swapping samples of similar quality, young or old. I am not interested in placing monetary values on samples all I ask is for a fair swap.

I am pretty flexible with my ratings but as a rough guide my points system as follows:-

At the moment I am on a fact finding mission to find the best blends from the 1950`s-1980`s, there is some quality out there but you need to do your homework.

under 50 points - For cleaning paint brushes

Under 60 points - Rubbish and only to be used with  coca cola

60-69 points - Drinkable , Just.

70-79 points- Not bad but not exciting either

80-84 points - Getting better but you would not buy another bottle

85-88 points - Good and possibly would get another bottle

89-91 points - Very good, definitely worth buying

92-94 points -  Excellent

95-96 points- Awesome

97 points and above - A whisky that leaves me speechless



Kind regards
