Whisky Reviews for Dumbarton 1986 SMWS G14.5

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.00 points

  1. Nergal did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS tasting notes: The aromas portrayed the warm softness of a fluffy pillow filled with marshmallows and sponge cake as we slipped into a dream world of squashy fudge and butterscotch. The antique wood of a bedframe
    came with a thick layer of wax polish and linseed oil as complex herbal notes incorporated rosemary, basil and thyme. Gentle fruit poured from freshly squeezed apple juice and oranges growing on a tree, beckoning a palate with the velvety texture of vanilla milkshake. Dried apricots and figs smoothly navigated towards apple pie and custard, whilst cinnamon butter melted on warm crumpets. Seasoned wood returned to frame the finish, joined by layers of hazelnuts and chocolate.
