About NXI:

Just call me Niki. I'm from Sofia, Bulgaria and I have diverse interests, including geopolitics, sports, painting and jazz music, but it can be said that whisky comes first. At least for now. 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.

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.
