About NXI:

Just call me Niki. I'm from Sofia, Bulgaria and my main occupation is writing poetry and prose. Among my passions that follow immediately after are classical music, jazz, and whisky, of course. My theoretical knowledge in the field is solid and far exceeds my practical experience. I choose each of my next whiskies very carefully and sometimes the process takes months. My task is further complicated by the limited range on the local market and the limited funds with which I tend to part with the purchase of whisky. In this line of thinking, my main goal, of course, has always been to find those whiskies that offer the best value for money. The main tasting glass I have been using for many years is Eisch "Jeunesse" Malt Whisky Glass.

Explanation of my scoring system:

  0-79 - DISGUSTING to POOR whisky, which is not drinkable or at least has unforgivable flaws.

80-84 - MEDIOCRE whisky, which has serious flaws, is impersonal or just not to my taste.

85-87 - GOOD to VERY GOOD whisky, which has obvious flaws or is not inspiring enough.

88-90 - EXCELLENT whisky, which even if it has some small flaws, is inspiring enough to compensate for them.

91-95 - EXCEPTIONAL whisky, which has a huge class and great charisma.

96-99 - PHENOMENAL whisky, which could hardly be described in words.

    100 - THE HOLY GRAIL.

* If two whiskies have the same number of points, it does not necessarily mean that I find them equally good.

210.000 bottles milestone release

A new release for the 210.000 bottles milestone. We just passed the 210.000 registered bottles, which calls for a new whisky. We selected an M&H pomegranate wine cask, which matured at the dead sea (the lowest point on earth). It is a huge flavor bomb. However, with only 255 bottles available, you should not wait too long.
