The Scotchcast Scoring System

Back to the Main Page

Here at the Scotchcast, we use a 10 point scoring system, with a low of one and a high of ten, in ½ point increments.

Scoring Guidelines

5 and below: A Scotch with very significant problems, usually off flavors or balance issues. These Scotches probably should not have been released as single malts.

6: These Scotches have some major balance issues. However, they are still worth trying.

7: Scotches receiving a 7 have only a few balance issues.

8: A high quality Scotch with few, if any flaws.

9 and above: Flawless(!), world class Scotches.
