Whisky Reviews for Glenburgie 1989 CWL

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.22 points

  1. Gloin scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The smell is unusual, the bright fruit notes are very spicy and paired with spices, which I usually know more in connection with sherry-heavy whisky. In the mouth, he loses a bit of the exotic and is very oak dominated, as well as the finish. An internal whisky, probably not suitable for everyone, as it is neither very accessible nor pleasing. I like him a lot. blind tasting
    • Nose
      The first impression is hard to decipher, spicy, vanilla, baked apple, slightly alcoholic ... I prefer to leave that for a moment. ... After a while he becomes more accessible, the sharpness of the alcohol gives way, the individual notes become clearer. Tart apple, vanilla, some cinnamon, spicy and not very sweet, dry white wine, some grass and sawdust, clove, after a while getting a little sweeter
    • Taste
      Fairly heavy body and strong onset, apple juice, apple peel, a little lemon, sorrel, a hint of ginger, strong oak, first dry, then sweeter
    • Finish
      Tart, intense, slightly bitter oak, slightly sour, bread crust, long

  3. The Whisky Cyclist did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    this is a shy whisky for it age,  81 points
    • Nose
      little sour, white wine
    • Taste
      again this white wine idea, are you sure it is not a finish
    • Finish
      bitter with a little sweet, but it fades away quitly

  4. Toffie76 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Re-tested, beautiful evolution with ventilation. If I had to quote it today, I would set it to 88. Good bottle! Recommended for lovers of fruity-lemony - woody

  5. Toffie76 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      A lot of pep, lemon, a little spice, white pepper. It's pretty clean, fresh and accurate. Very nice nose. Complex and woody. Traces of smoke? A little medicinal touch with eugenol. A little yeast, mold, gouache. Some wax, a lot of vanilla. Honey. Citrus. A little sap too. So greedy.
    • Taste
      The mouth is a little behind by cons. Younger and alcoholic than the nose. Quite powerful. "Hot", ginger, cloves, lemon. A lot of wood in the final.
    • Finish
      Development quite cereal, and bitter final marked by the wood. Average length

  6. Bishlouk scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A fruity / woody very interesting. Tastes and smells make a rotation, giving a certain complexity that is welcome.
    • Nose
      Fresh fruit, green wood, a hint of hazelnut. Citrus notes. Very sweet, greedy. After aeration, cereal notes surface; then beeswax.
    • Taste
      A very great sweetness of sweet fruits. Little tingling on the tip of the tongue. Lâ €
    • Finish
      From the wooded drought, a slight bitterness. A little wax comes back afterwards.

  7. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N: grains - bread, hay, honey, exotic fruits, plums and peach
    T: grains - bread, iron, walnuts and bitter fruits - blood orange
    F: medium with sweet fruits, vanilla, pear and spices

  8. markjedi1 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The nose and finish were okay, while I found the
    palate enchanting. Middle-of-the-road Speysider.
    Around 90 EUR.
    • Nose
      Hey! Waxy nose with only a little fruit, but
      immediately mineraly. Wet rocks and even the smell of a First Aid kit. Hint of
      vanilla, white fruit and citrus. Something of yoghurt or cheesecake. Slight
      bitterness. Pleasant, though not earth shattering.
    • Taste
      On the palate, it surprises by not only being pretty
      spicy (loads of pepper, little bit of ginger), but also a lot more fruity. Candied
      fruit, mostly from the citrus family. The yoghurt evolves into coconut milk.
      The bitterness from the nose returns. The vanilla is much louder now.
    • Finish
      The finish is rather long, spicy and fruity, but dies
      a bitter death.

  9. MaltMartin scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A very subtle and delicate Glenburgie. An enjoyble dram.
    • Nose
      Yeasty notes intermingled with soft fruit (grapefruit, oranges and red berries). Also hay and heather. Later on some mint.
    • Taste
      The fruitiness remains. Lemon and vanilla. Quite complex. The taste develops through time.
    • Finish
      Long and fresh. Bitter-sweetness. Nice oakiness.
