Whisky Reviews for Glenugie 1982 DL

- The nose is a good as it gets. IMHO this was kept in the cask for too long. Still very good.
Tasted this on 2016-02-24.
Sweet honey, hay, vanilla, waxy soft oak wood, dried yellow fruits, banana, mango, peach, green grapes, some red fruits, mint, apples, some red fruit. Absolutely fabulous.
Sweet, honey, banana, yellow fruit, oak. Does not completely deliver what the nose promises, unfortunately.
Medium long malty, bitter at the end. Fruits fade away quickly.
- Glenugie is often ignored and getting difficult to find, but I think this one is a hidden gem. The previous cask of Glenugie in the Douglas Laing Old Malt Cask series was quite popular, and I can see why.
Starts on vanilla and flowers. Quite a sweet but fresh nose, reminds me of a good (flowery) moscatel wine. Hints of bergamot and pollen. Developing on fruit candy. Pineapple, orange marmalade, peach. Caramelized apples. Pears on syrup. Slightly waxy as well. What can I say: wow!
Here we go again... all sorts of fruits or fruit liqueurs, candy sugar, hints of cake and marmalade. Vanilla. Marzipan. The oakiness is well controlled for the age. More herbal notes towards the end.
Very creamy, soft vanilla. Medium length.
- Sweet and surprisingly fresh nose, marzipan, vanilla toffee und a lot of fruity notes in the mouth. A middle to long finish, sugar sweet. If you ever taken a dram, you`ll never forgott it.
