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 do tend to try whisky from closed distilleries because it will not be available for much longer in my view

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

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

Just message me and I will send you a list of what I have available. I have been collecting samples for around 15 years from bottles purchased. My list of open bottles is just part of what I have.

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
