Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1989 DR

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.00 points

  1. whiskycuse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasting Notes: Nose: Fairly sweet and perfumed, with very subtle smoke, which is extremely in the background and really barely noticeable. Then some iodine, and fresh citrus notes, but immediately it is sweeter again, with vanilla and powdered sugar. It takes quite a while for it to show itself more complex, but then becomes mineral, almost salty, heather and earthy notes over time, as well as freshly cut grass and sandalwood.
    Mouth: Powerful, not as sweet as expected, more citrusy, mineral and surprisingly elegant. Slender in style, even though sweet vanilla comes up, which is then quickly replaced by earthy, dingy notes. There are no more lavender tones (at the end of the 1980's he took this in many bottlings significantly), the smoke and the alcohol well integrated, but with peppery pungency and some licorice.
    Finish: Long, but now thinned slightly, plant-like and with very fine smoke.
    Conclusion: A nice malt, with a pleasant nose, the taste is the end but always characterless. Good, but not optimal. https://whiskycuse.wordpress.com/
