Whisky Reviews for Glenlivet 1989 McC

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.80 points

  1. DocF scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Color: deep gold.

    A lot of barrel, easy to savor. 87 points.
    • Nose
      In the first nose racy, especially pear and real vanilla, lightly "wooded", then quickly darkens to baked apples, custard, brown bread, overripe bananas, toasted almonds. With water: even darker, polished wood, fir honey.
    • Taste
      With water: it tolerates milk coffee, more polished wood, dark chocolate, malt beer. Sometimes has something resinous, plus straw, old books. It tastes mostly like barrel, is thick and oily in the mouth.
    • Finish
      Long. Malt beer, tree sap, musty cellar. Some vanilla, cardamom, brown bread. A little too dry towards the end.
