About me:

  • 34 years old

  • Norwegian (living in Norway)

Whisky facts:

  • First whisky tasted: Jameson
  • First single malt tasted: Laphroaig 10 Years
  • Favourite whisky: Searching


  • When I score whisky I have adopted the system of Malt Maniac Johannes van den Heuvel:
    • 01 – 09: Barely drinkable gagwater. Serving me this may result in physical violence.
    • 10 – 19: Truly disgusting. Varying degrees of awfulness; highly avoidable.
    • 20 – 29: Only suitable for intoxication purposes. Best used as Anti-freeze.
    • 30 – 39: Definitely not enjoyable. Don’t pour me another glass, please.
    • 40 – 49: Flawed. I’ll drink it, but don’t expect me to be happy about it.
    • 51 – 54: All things considered I like it, but just barely. It’s a thin line between love and hate.
    • 55 – 59: I’m far from crazy about this, but I could find some redeeming qualities.
    • 60 – 64: Quite drinkable, but I could find nothing in there to get very excited about.
    • 65 – 69: An altogether satisfactory experience, but somehow it doesn’t fulfil its potential.
    • 70 – 74: An enjoyable drink, just a tad below average. Could do better.
    • 75 – 79: A very enjoyable drink; above average but not exciting enough to be reccommendable.
    • 80 – 84: Recommendable. Very nice indeed, thank you. Pour me another one, please.
    • 85 – 89: Highly recommendable. Wonderful! Never a dull moment with one of these.
    • 90 – 94: Everybody should try this at least once in their life. Great liquids of the world.
    • 95 – 99: Exceptional. The sort of stuff where price starts to become almost irrelevant.
    • 100 pts: True ‘aqua vitae’. Once I’ve found this legendary drink I can rest easy.
