Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1989 DR

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.50 points

  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Not a bad dram by any means, but just veers towards a little too sweet. Lacks a little cohesion and excitement. One that I’ll pour and not think too much about. Which works sometimes!
    • Nose
      83 83
      Not a very expressive nose. Actually it’s rather forgettable. A little smoke in the form of cigarette ash, some white stone fruits, but it’s muted. Simple syrup.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Flavours gain steam here with the ash building along with fruity notes and some agave syrup. A tad sweet, but some nice flavours.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Keeps building to a nice robust finish. Definitely the best part for me. Nice ashtray smoke co-mingling with fruit cocktail in light syrup.
