Whisky Reviews for Aberfeldy 1989 GM

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.88 points

  1. Willie JJ scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    The oak has got on top of this a little. It's still good but I bet it was better when it was 15.
    • Nose
      Heather honey, dusty oak, musty warehouses, linseed oil putty and geraniums.
    • Taste
      Light arrival, but the sweetness quickly follows and then becomes peppery.
    • Finish
      Peppery sugar all the way to the end with a dusting of cinnamon.

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Very tight, straightforward profile. The age notes, the honey and the slightly dusty oak make the Highlander nevertheless a pleasure.
    • Nose
      Beautiful notes of yellow fruits, honey and slightly dusty oak
    • Taste
      Spicy oak and honey and some fruit
    • Finish
      some menthol, midland on oak with ripe yellow fruit

  3. HunterRomario scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Smell sweetened spicy, ground hazelnuts, malt. Everything is carried in a lighter style with rising alcohol. Also, honey and mushrooms with vanilla.
    • Taste
      On the tongue at first it works very gently, but after a few seconds there is a marked sharpness (which I like), it works sufficiently, and I would tip it for more than 43% of the alcohol. Ripe fruit, malt, oak wood. I like it very much and adds decent, medium-long relish.

  4. Nethar did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    nice Highland whisky
    • Nose
      fruity aroma, citrus, meadow honey
    • Taste
      sweet honey at first, then goes spicy, no bitterness
    • Finish
      sweetness, honey, wood, a little bit bitter, long finish
