  1. hs305 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    [January, 2003]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 468 that I bought for 39 Euro in July, 2002.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state a clean and very quaffable sherry profile. Not that I want to impose my taste or score on anyone else - but this is another whisky where I am a little sceptical about the WB rating as many of the high scores here are voted by the same members group as e.g. https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/59475/1981 or https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/1645/198 or https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/42859/1977-wm that are all good but average only whiskies.  Do they belong to a former shoplink?
