  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Glenugie is always a Delight. This one doesn't dissapoint either. What a sad loss that this distillery has been demolished! Sample from the bottle of Dornoch Castle
    • Nose
      Starts with gentle fruitiness of lychee, pineapple and mango. Some beeswax and honey-clover. Marshmellow sweetness at the background. Complex and beautiful.
    • Taste
      Yellow apples intermingled with cake mix and custard-powder. Orange marmelade. Pink grapefruit as well. Later on notes of anise and fresh cedar wood. Roasted nuts. This is delicious.
    • Finish
      Quite long. Cinnamon and a little ginger. Becomes a tad bitter at the end.

  2. Andytka3 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    N- Well integrated of melting soft liquorice glazed on mixture of nuts. Full, oily nuance with plenty of OME, mint, raisin, peaches and apricot. Scents of flower garden rises with chocolate.Well complex but pity on the strength that make it seems a wee fragile.

    P- Light and thin texture, pretty harmless. Herby and green barley sweet, grassy tinge with dirty honey and candle wax. Mouthwatering sour oak at back palate. Vaguely earthy, vaguely salty.

    F- Medium, soft sherried leather hue, drying on sourish oak with underlying with shy plum.  Balanced but on the soft side.— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
