Whiskybase

About Vince:

Favs: Yoichi, Lagavulin, GlenDronach, Springbank, Ardbeg, Clynelish, Ben Nevis, Glenfarclas, Caol Ila, Talisker, and Highland Park.  Will Port Ellen and Brora reopen?  Generally in favour of bold (but not one-dimensional) flavours and complex aromas.  More inclined towards old-school distillate-driven whiskies, rather than heavy-handed, engineered use of (new) wood and ever more expanding wine finishes. 

Scoring: 0-60 not drinkable--down the drain material ; 61-70 flawed, raw, but drinkable when desperate ; 71-75 immature, some flaws, flat, avoid; 76-80 minor off notes, forgettable; 81-85 from middle of the road "safe" to enjoyable, maybe good entry level; 86-90 very good to excellent, worth seeking out; 91-93 exceptional, not to be missed; 94+ lifetime dram, legendary bottling.   Average score: 84   Median score: 85
