One Cork Rating
Remember there’s no such thing as a bad whisky, but a Whisky (single malt or blend) which is given a “Whisky Boys one Cork Whisky Rating”, this would not be at the front of the cabinet or a Whisky of choice faced with a nicely stocked gantry.
This whisky would be better used for cooking or to keep for cocktail mixing.
Two Cork Rating
Drinkable and pleasant, however possibly lacking a bit a oomph and a reason to rush out to buy again.
This whisky should make it into your cabinet but maybe only buy another bottle if on special offer.
Three Cork Rating
Definitely a dram we will need to go in again and sample another age or expression. There is a little room for improvement and it’s perfect as an every day very enjoyable dram.
Worthy of a purchase or two….
Four Cork Rating
Should be in everyones cabinet, right at the front, giving this whisky pride of place. Enjoy this dram and ensure the bottle is replaced immediately. A 4 corker would absolutely make your top 10 list.
Recommend this whisky to everyone.
Five Cork Rating
There could be nothing better, WOW. Packed to the brim with the most wonderful flavor. Savor every drop.
