Whisky Reviews for Braes of Glenlivet 1989 CM

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.90 points

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Nose:-
    First come the grainy note, follow by green, grassy and wet turf, hint
    of peat linger at the background. Dash of water to unleash the caramel
    and whiff of pine like an old book. Palate:- Bold and polished, complex and fabulous mouthfeel. Profound
    sweetness of sugar cane, rum and raisin. A little pungent nugmet and
    vanilla add to the depth.

    Finish:- Loud with medium length finish. Crisp, citrusy and minty.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting of a sample from Erik. This one really shows what age can do, ten years younger and this would have been a terribly boring whisky.
    • Nose
      Typical bourbon cask notes: Peach, vanilla, lime, apple... A somewhat farmy impression, such as hay. Cocoa, malt, leather. A little wax and a whiff of glue.
    • Taste
      Peach, lime, hay, malt, dark chocolate, honey, vanilla and peppery oak.
    • Finish
      Peach, honey, cocoa, vanilla, oak and an earthy touch. Gets dry quickly.

  3. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    tasted with Aby
    • Nose
      oily, some nuts, spices, herbs, citrus - grape fruits and floral - sunflower
    • Taste
      spices, grass, banana, bapi pangang sauce and citrus - lime
    • Finish
      medium drying, long and warming with spices

  4. Titi94 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by TWS:Nose: Restrained nose with vanilla and bourbon show.
