Whisky Reviews for Braes of Glenlivet 1989 CM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.40 points

  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    This is a weird one, which is not an insult in my book.
    • Nose
      Initially ripe oily exotic fruits such as papaya. Then lime, pear, honey, grass and light smoke. In my mind this nose takes me back and forth between Lowlands and Campbeltown.
    • Taste
      Heavy wood influence, such as pencil shavings and pepper. Besides the oily fruitiness perhaps also some vegetables like... pumpkin?
    • Finish
      A remarkable amount of smoke. Milk chocolate, lime, white pepper and eventually lychee.

    The nose offers nothing unfortunately, otherwise the mouth was rather pleasant
    • Nose
      very long to express, even after a few minutes and a little water. We smell a little cereal, cut grass, lemon, orange and honey in the background
    • Taste
      More expressive and more interesting, with a texture a little creamy and pleasant. Very sweet and easy to drink. On the aromas of the nose, then with water the whisky becomes more fruity, a little pear now but also a bitterness a little embarrassing in the end.
    • Finish
      average length
