Whisky Reviews for Dumbarton 1987 MBl

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.96 points

  1. Gloin scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The smell pleases with its straight-line orientation, the dill and salmiak give a maritime painting. This impression is not preserved in the mouth and on the palate. Although the whiskey lacks a bit of complexity, it does what it does well. The glue association in the mouth disturbs a little bit. blind tasting
    • Nose
      Vanilla, lemon, orange, spicy oak, light glue note, dill, a hint of ammonia
    • Taste
      Cool, spicy onset, the whiskey glows on the tongue, vanilla, oak, some menthol, the association of glue is retained in the mouth, a little sweeter, bitterness comes to light orange note
    • Finish
      Soft and round, but again with clear oak, delicate bitterness on the palate, orange peel, less vanilla, Seville orange marmalade, medium-long

  2. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Blindtasting.
    I did not recognize this whiskey as a grain.

    Very pleasant and varied nose, in the mouth then a little weaker.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Malt, caramel, neat oak chips, spicy forest honey, fresh citrus notes, a few tropical fruits, low alcohol. The aroma in the glass develops wonderfully, becomes ever more intense.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Spicy on, followed by sweet honey, some exotic fruit basket.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium long, alternating between sweet and spicy, pepper, only after the second sip you can feel tannins on the tongue.

  3. EinSpatzUnterVielen scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A grain and as such clearly visible. And no bad: beautiful rich flavors that are staggered perceptible. Reminds a bit of rum.
    • Nose
      Petroleum is very short, then it opens slowly: toffee, honey, vanilla, coconut, juicy dates, apples, milk chocolate, almonds (= Toblerone!), sage, eagle owl and pencil
    • Taste
      a handful of dates, apples, oranges, coconut, vanilla, honey, lots of pepper, baking cocoa, strong coffee, thyme, rosemary, sage, hyssop, angelica, then pineapple
    • Finish
      medium to long, sweet-peppery-spicy-bitter, strong coffee, hyssop, vanilla and coconut, in the end again the pineapple

  5. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    While I still find the nose quite pleasant and somewhat different than the usual sherry aroma, the taste brings me back to the ground. The typical Grain bitterness and the poorly bound alcohol can no longer be captured by the too weak cask.
    • Nose
      Pretty sweet with cereals, molasses, caramel and vanilla. Shortly toasted bread and coffee come to light. A hint of citrus. The alcohol cools neatly in the nose with a touch towards stinging.
    • Taste
      Begins sweet again and then quickly comes a decent barrage of bitterness, which pushes more and more forward. Caramel, also some molasses and coffee are there. And then the alcohol hits. And with power. This builds up with the bitterness to an unpleasant, burning-bitter impression.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium to long, but it is mainly borne by the bitterness.

  6. PatSch23_12 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very delicious Grain, worth the price of just over 100 € in any case.
    • Nose
      distinct chocolate and coconut notes. The bourbon barrel comes into full effect here, without the grain being woody even at the base. Fully ripe apples with pleasantly fresh acidity. A nutritiousness, like caramelized hazelnuts. Allspice and cinnamon make for something Christmas.
    • Taste
      light, fresh and yet oily. Barrel and age contrast nicely here. Unconventional mix of sweet, boiled fruit, slightly sourish grain and dark spicy notes. The allspice and the Christmas spices are back.
    • Finish
      Vanilla pudding at the end, followed by a tingling spice that shows the age.

  7. ARDBERG scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Dumbarton used continuous still equipment designed in the US and only used maize as raw material, afai could find out. So quite a bourbon touch inside and a very good cask combine for a great dram that gets 2 points better when considerably aired. Sampled at a tasting.

  8. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A very beautiful, round and noble Grain, drinkable and delicious as an old Bourbon.
    • Nose
      Manuka honey, toffee, vanilla sweets, honey melon, very sweet, round and concentrated, you will not find much more, but it is very pleasant, some cinnamon sticks in the background, some sugared apricot
    • Taste
      Strong, sweet but also with a fine bitter and herbal note, surprising, honey melon, cotton candy, Manuka honey everywhere, vanilla syrup, the sugared apricot chips as well, some almonds, cinnamon sticks again, has a lot of a beautiful, very old bourbon, oregano, some dried rosemary
    • Finish
      Oregano, thyme, Toffiffee, sugar syrup, honey, some bitter oak chips now also there, medium to long
