    No 2 of 11 of a Glenugie H2H
    • Nose
      91 91
      Quite full on at first, there are white fruits but they are in the background with a big cereal note taking centre stage. Fruit wise there is green apple, but the overriding note is mango and a faint cherry menthol note.There is a faint strange note of burning damp leaves kicking about, you know that smoke like hell on a bonfire. This nose has some depth to it.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Plenty of fruit , apple, lemon, pineapple but not particularly sweet and then a lovely stewed fruit comes in , an exotic fruit. The sweetness increases with some oat notes coming in and something a little minty which is really nice.
      Spices seem to kick start things on the half way mark, and then it explodes mixing with rich juicy fruit, lip smacking.
    • Finish
      93 93
      Oh what a finish, the best part so long, not in your face just fades gracefully on a spice fruit combo

      With a splash of water the spice and fruit explode and are even better, a truly lovely whisky.
