    Glenugie 31
    yo 1980/2011 (43.8%, Scotch Malt Whisky Society, #99.13, Refill bourbon
    hogshead, 'Exotic scenes in a Bedouin tent', 98 bottles)
    This baby was one of the many stars at London’s Whisky Show at
    Vinopolis this year. A great, great show with many outstanding whiskies
    (many more to come on whiskyfun!) Colour: gold. Nose: stunning! A
    wonderful elegance for a start, with a combination of musk, ripe
    peaches, linseed oil and… well, many other oils. There are also
    strawberries and quinces, Virginia tobacco, an unexpected beefiness
    (cold roast beef) and then high-end wu-long tea, mint, mangos, touches
    of anchovies (really), olives… What an incredible complexity! Mouth:
    creamy and fruity, very lively, a whole fruit salad with dashes of
    pepper and nutmeg from the oak. Enough said. Finish: long, with several
    aromas that we already had in the nose. Tea, mangos and pepper. Only the
    aftertaste is a notch too oaky/peppery for my taste. Comments: when
    Glenugie is (well, was) good, it’s extraordinary. Kudos to the Society
    for having issued this glory, that I could have scored even higher,
    wasn’t it for the slightly drying/greenish aftertaste. What a nose! SGP:572 - 92 points.
