Whisky Reviews for The Peat Bog 1990 Gs

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.87 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2018] A 23-years old Springbank-Longrow single cask bottling that is still available for 130 Euro more than 5 years after its release - hey, what is wrong? I certainly have to check this...

    ...and I cannot find anything wrong with it. This is a great Traditional Scotch style Springbank-Longrow without any flaw or off-note that is both interesting to explore and very enjoyable to quaff. Looking at today's average malt whisky price points I call this a bargain and I ordered another bottle...
    • Nose
      91 91
      The colour is old gold and the nose offers the full spectrum of aromas that can be expected from 20+years old Springbank drams plus some fine additional smokey-peaty notes in a nicely balanced mix. it reminds me of (a peated version of) the standard 21-years old Springbank release from 2018 that I liked very much. No off-note or imbalance that I can find - and it improves further with some drops of water added.
    • Taste
      90 90
      The taste is more peaty-smokey than the nose without harming the overall harmony of flavours. The smoke is rather that of a cold bonfire and not of the maritime-warming style that most of the Islay drams offer - but it is delicate, too. The barley sugars, honeys and fruits keep the bitter notes (tobacco, herbs) under control and all let enough space for some minor flavours that are interesting to explore as they come and go. They just play hide&seek with my taste buds which is a lot of fun...
    • Finish
      89 89
      The dram arrives warming and coating on the palate with no distracting moments. The finish is long and adds more spices together with a slight metallic-astringent note that I find quite interesting (and not distracting at all). It gets more herbal-bitter towards the end what is a nice contrast to the rather sweet nose. This dram is greatly chewable! Some water releases additional chalky-mineral aromas in the nose (very delicate!) and turns both the taste and finish smoother hence more quaffable. I suggest to explore it neat first but then reduce it to about 43% abv once you just want to enjoy it (without intellectual efforts)...

  2. Mannix65 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    old unobtrusive, beautifully balanced Longrow - by the proud age complex and round - great PLV
    • Nose
      Salty sea air, interwoven camp fire smoke, freshly peeled cucumber, but generally quite reserved
      - After adding water much sweeter, but also slightly green and grassy, ​​unripe honeydew melon
    • Taste
      Mature Granny Smith apples, the clear smoke spreads on the tongue, salted biscuits
      - water gives off fruity sweetness, the salty maritime character becomes more dominant
    • Finish
      long and dry, salt and smoke dominates

  3. Hemdl scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    No exceptional painting, but certainly not a bad malt. Beautiful Bourbon Cask Springbank, which in the end only the last "kick" missing to really highlight it. A little different than most jumpers, sometimes just without dirty sherry. Measured on the price of such an old Springbank anyhow currently an absolute bargain (120 €).
    • Nose
      Sweetish-fruity smoke. Green fruits, lemon juice, a little honey. Removes some woodier notes and some leather. Quite pleasant, but the "aha effect" remains here initially.
    • Taste
      Sweet and fruity it continues, from the smoke is initially felt nothing. Instead, a strong malt, which unfolds its flavors quickly. Straight and fresh, just like a bourbon cask can and must be. Citrus, honey, light nut notes (the sweet variety). Again, not necessarily unusual or unusual, but without fault and blame.
    • Finish
      Here, the smoke lets its muscles play and ensures a long finish. The sweet mixture of smoke adheres to the tongue and the palate, something (in view of the age, surprisingly little) spicier oak notes come to it. No bitterness, no dry mouthfeel. Fruity and fresh, with a clear smoke.

  4. mister glenfarclas scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very well made, gently matured whisky. Not mind blowing, but well worth being discovered. 
    • Nose
      Notes from a blind tasting! 

      Mature, settled nose. Warm, light peat smoke. No iodine, no medicinal touch. No Islay? More like a warming bonfire. Orange peel. Spicy cloves. Cinnamon. A little dusty. The smell of hot sand at the beach. All very withholding. 
    • Taste
      Gentle start. Sweet, warm smokiness. Rich oak. A little honey. Vanilla, burned caramel. Asswell as a touch of pepper. Again all a little shy. No steel hammer. But really mature, interwoven.
    • Finish
      Malty, medium long finish. Slightly smoky. 

  5. p4blo scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Not too distinctive, but still a very decent Springbank.
    • Nose
      This one is not very aromatic, the smoke is very faint, the fruits (mostly unripe orchard fruits) appear to be subsided, not much is going on. The balance is very good, just the intensity seems to be lacking a bit. Other than that, it's a very typical Springbank.
    • Taste
      Sweet at first, with white sugar and red apple, becomes quite spicy after a short while, freshly ground pepper and chilli are burning the tongue, there are some faint notes of yellow fruits, but again, it's lacking depth and intensity a little.
    • Finish
      Slightly smokey, slightly fruity. Not bad, medium length.

    I forgive no points, but that's great. 5 Stars
