I love the Auchentoshan 3Wood. The Select bottling is much milder and sweeter than the 3Wood. Some floral notes as well as mild briny taste. Smooth but not a strong finish. Easy nice drink nonetheless. I like it better than their travel retail series.
Yes, the ratings are out of 100 total points. Your narrative sounds more like 80 +/- 5 pts. For most people below 70 pts is horrible, 75 pts is just ok, 80 not bad, 85 solidly good, and over 85 is very good and up.
Perhaps I got the points system wrong. My thinking was nice (65-75) great (75-90) excellent (90-100). It's out of a maximum of 100 points is it not? Apologize for the confusion.
