“Brands: The choice of brands has a significant influence on the performance of the bottle. This is confirmed by the demand at whisky auctions for special distilleries. WHYTOKEN GmbH focuses on well-known brands such as Macallan, Ardbeg and Bowmore, but also rari- ties, which are explained below.

Rarities: Rarities can be defined as a variety of whisky bottles. WHYTOKEN GmbH defines this as a unique market opportunity, which are caused by special events. These include distilleries such as Port Ellen, Brora and Karuizawa, which are now closed and no longer produce whisky.”

Top notch advisory team coupled with well diversified brands and rarities. This security token pegged against the value of whiskey is brilliantly thought out.

All the best!

Team is small and CEO is recruitment consultant - doubt he has domain expertise on this area!
Whitepaper is so small - has very little information about concept and filled with theory!!
MVP pointing to their solidity smart contract!
I see not value for this project!!

Hello Paresh,

Thank you so much for your rating. Unfortunately I have to contradict you completely and at the same time I am disappointed about such a misjudgement.

1) Our CEO is recruitment consultant, that's correct and at the same time has invested in almost as many ICOs as you have rated so far (yes nearly 140). He has an enormous pool of knowledge and, above all, many years of investor experience. However, I have to protect him first and foremost, because what makes a good manager? Right, he can lead a TEAM and recruits above all people who are better than himself, otherwise you wouldn't have to hire him but could do it yourself and that's exactly what a good manager is. My book recommendation for you is "good to great".

To the Whitepaper: Yes it is relatively "short" as a classic Whitepaper should be! That a whitepaper (overview of all our IT topics) is also used as a marketing paper, has not passed us by, but we do not think much of this approach. If you have any questions about the project, please place them directly with me so that we can address them and improve. Unfortunately, your current feedback won't help us at this point.

The fact that you don't see any value in this project shakes me particularly. The project was conceived for a maximum value retention of the investor, if you don't recognize this, you either didn't deal with the concept or didn't understand it. All investors money flows 1 to 1 into a real good (whisky) and we have market access which makes us more than competitive.

I would be very pleased if you would reconsider your rating or give us concrete points of criticism so that we can develop further and also meet up to your expectations.

team backed by strong advisors along with an interesting project. Though the idea of securitizing alcohol is not new, to specifically target tequila plus with the help of a good team could make it a game changer.

$25m for what? Use of funds:
- 95% Whisky
-5% Logistics...

It is not a blockchain project, more looks like crowdfunding for a spontaneous idea that will attract inexperienced people, money grabbing.

The team is solid, moreover, advisers have experience in up to 100 ICO projects)

There is no GitHub or MVP, but I suppose they even do not need it.

I do not like tokenomics and bonuses in the project. What are lock-ups or vesting for advisers and team?
There is no sense and added value in this idea.

A certain lack of experience from the core team in the cryptocurrencies and ICOs sector, but this weakness is filled through good advisors who will bring their expertise to the team.

A clear and detailed white paper, a promising market, an asset-backed vision and a high-end whisky portfolio seem particularly relevant. Few competitors in this whisky market.

I look forward to seeing how the team will develop the project!

DYOR! I am just thinking out aloud!

ICOBench's major advisors to support the core team.
WP seems to present a very sensible prospect - Asset backed token (by whiskey), I just saw one backed by wine a few days back! Got to hand it to these teams for genuine ideas!
On the flip side of things, considering the present state of the crypto-market , whiskey does seem like a great solution :)
Interesting to see where this finally goes and just how it holds up in the real world, post ICO!

DYOR! I am just thinking out aloud!

Strong advisors make up for lack of experience. Pegging the value of a coin to any commodity decreases the chance for extreme volatility. Hopefully they can exploit this niche.

Even though team is strong on this project, I believe this market has very limited access.

Only people with interested in certain brands will be interested with this project.

Overall a good project, Cheers Guys!
