The 4x25 rate is simple:
- max. 25 points for the nose
- max. 25 points for the taste
- max. 25 points for the finish and
- max 25 points for the balance.

All these points together makes the totall 4x25 rate. The 4x25 rate overrules the normale rate, so if you already rated a whisky and you want to 4x25 rate it, just start the 4x25 rate.
