  1. ak47 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Glenugie 31 yo 1977 
    (58,1%, Signatory Vintage 2009, cask #7, 577 btl.)

    Nose: starts on milk chocolate and lovely fruits (gooseberry, kiwi) with spicy oak. Honey. The sherry adds meaty / rubber notes which I find a bit of a bummer because it mutes the freshness of the fruits. Water helps to hide the rubber and bring out leather and more fruit though. Complex. Mouth: spicy, quite herbal and slightly resinous. Underneath there are fruity notes: strawberries, oranges, cassis this time. Not the classic old Speyside profile but not heavy sherry either. Water adds meaty notes and chocolate. Some nutmeg. Quite savoury and a bit half-hearted maybe but very powerful and confident. Finish: dry and slightly bitter. Slightly tannic with hints of tea.

    I was less impressed than last time because the fruit basket is less exhuberant, and the powerful spicy oak keeps it out of the 90’s for me. But it’s certainly rewarding and anything but mediocre. Around € 160. A sister cask (cask #1 – same oloroso treatment) was released a few weeks ago.

    Score: 87/100

    Meets exactly my taste, has really meaty-fruity and hearty Sherrynoten, unfortunately, you do not have much Glenugie here, this is forgiven in the barrel quality but.
    • Nose
      Chocolate sauce, black cherry, great, full nose, dates, figs, rum raisins, sweet licorice, burnt butter, slightly roasted chestnut, burgundy wine, mahogany potion, old leather, you also notice the power behind it, fresh coffee
    • Taste
      A lot of fresh coffee here too, roasted caramel popcorn, perfectly balanced between sweet-bitter and fresh anyway, figs, rum-raisins, pickled strawberries, black cherry, chestnut liqueur, roibo tea, oiled leather, mahogany potion also here
    • Finish
      Blood orange, grapefruit, leather, dark malt, raisins, caramelized walnuts, long to very long
