Whisky Reviews for Braes of Glenlivet 1989 DR

    Oops, never reviewed this one. I split a bottle with a friend. Straight away it was a miss, it was so unbelievably hot and water would not help to open any flavours. Initially I had it at 70/100. After half a year in an open bottle some flavours settled making it acceptable, so I raised my score, but it’s never going to blow your socks off.

    Originally it was dusty, cardboardy and unbelievably hot. Although quaffable, there was nothing to get excited about flavourwise. After 6 months or so the dusty notes subsided to an acceptable level and a honey note has come out. Still very hot (cayenne, white pepper, ginger), but also peach, brown butter, and slightly mineral. A big upgrade. So give it time.
