Whisky Reviews for Lagavulin 1989

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.91 points

  2. Brinker scored this whisky 91 points Member Senior

    Quite easy on the nose, at least if you're a peat-head. I find it quite balanced and not at all harsh. Mind you, I just popped open the bottle - I did let it sit in the glass for 15 minutes before diving in. Good burn from the peat, without ever feeling like it's too much or not enough. Great dram of Laga, but distinct and different from any other I've tried.
    Finish is lingering for a while, but very smooth.

    • Nose
      Smoke, ham, seaweed, salt, a little phenolic, honey
    • Taste
      Sweet, smoky-ashen, slightly peppery, forest honey, vanilla, some green apple
    • Finish
      The smoke covers the mouth and leaves an Avenger's chamber;)

    What I have often enjoyed about the Distillers Edition is the

    sophistication of each different bottle released. They all have

    individual character that are hard to match up. I love the smoke, peat

    and lush fruit like complexity in each drink. When you add a few drops

    of water it comes alive and the palate just gets more vibrant and a

    finish that`s equally wonderful.

  7. Timo scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    The 1989 DE is a great addition to the normal 16 year old. This DE stands out from others positively.
    • Nose
      The nose reveals campfire, bacon - a Lagavulin. Old leather, smoke.
    • Taste
      The taste is not complex. Sweet, smoky, peaty, sherry, dry.
    • Finish
      The finish is long. Soft, a lot of smoke, warm.
