Hammerhead 1989 Vintage Review

Hammer Head 1989 Blind review of the Hammerhead 1989 Vintage

I recently took part in the Dramming.com Freestyle Blind Tasting contest which entailed being sent 5 blind samples, identified only by colour which i then had to nose and taste and send back my best guesses at. To be honest i was utterly rubbish at this but i will show below what my guess was for each whisky.

I had guessed that this was - Bains Cape Mountain Whisky – Grain Whisky from South Africa at 43%

Tasting Notes & Details


Huge Grain whisky/ Bourbon nose, dewy grass, and sweet meadows, instantly considering Bains Cape Mountain Whisky for this one, stunning nose


Sweet and grassy, lots of floral notes in there too.


Has a bit of a kick to it, nothing major though just nice to sit and sip
