Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1989 NCS

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.60 points

  1. Sensefreak scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    What a fantastic Bowmore! Delicate, complex nose. Elegant and pleasant, very long lasting palete with gentle smoke, fresh, sweet caramel notes. Hints of burnt sugar (mayby burnt apples), lavendar and sulphor. Very long finish with a nice spicyness.

  2. jttoft scored this whisky 50 points Expert Junior

    Horrid.

      Some pretty good elements. Salty smoke. Light sherry. Motor oil. Dusty. Liquorice. And lavender (ugh)!

      Nothing but overwhelming and disgusting FWP and lavender soap. Hint of smoke maybe, but it's very hard to discern anything other than soap.

      Horrible.
    • Finish

      Soap.
