About topos:

My scores are according to the Malt Review scale (so I do not give whiskybase ratings):

1/10 – Probably Fujikai 10 years old…

2/10 – Would go a long way to avoid ever drinking this again.

3/10 – Pretty not great. Or astonishingly dull. Either way, no thanks.

4/10 – Some glimmers of hope, but the negatives draw more focus than the positives.

5/10 – Bang average. Not bad, per se, but don’t expect your pulse to raise.

6/10 – Pretty good. Worth a glass now and then, but perhaps not one for a special occasion.

7/10 – Very good. Might um and ah over buying a full bottle if the price is high, but you can buy a glass with confidence. If it’s under £50, take a punt.

8/10 – Really excellent. Well worth picking up a bottle. If it’s under £50 you shouldn’t think twice.

9/10 – Exceptional stuff. The missing mark is probably because we’re fussy.

10/10 – Mind-bendingly brilliant. Whisky almost has no business being this good. An absolute must-taste. To expect more would be soulless and churlish.
