Whisky Reviews for Glenugie 1966 RWD

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.08 points

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N- Nice nutty and buttery old malt aroma with sharp penetrating boiling citrus. Heavy orange candy, gym nuance make its way thru gradually, and get quite oily and more buttery. But a bit lame and subdue, not develop much afterwards.

    P- Orange peel infused wood, or wood infused orange peel? Anyway, the combination does strike up pretty elegantly with bold bitterness, bone dry and non sweet herbaceous mouthfeel. Bitter liquorice that also with sweetness stripped. Seems lack some filler.

    F- Medium long, dried sticky oily peels prevails with toasted spicy wood extracts. +1 for a rare malt from lost distillery, but seems single dimensional. Like watching the wood/orange waltzing in an emptied grand ballroom, you get a bit bored with it after awhile.

    Tasting note by Serge Valentin

    Glenugie 1966/1986 (55%, Samaroli, 480 bottles) Colour: deep gold. Nose: the same kind of development it appears, starting quite lazily on bitter oranges and already that almond milk. Quite beerish as well, rubbed orange skin, cinchona… Also bay leaf, a little juniper, bitter chocolate… With a few drops of water: it gets nicer indeed, more satisfying and farmier as almost always. Quite some lapsang souchong tea, newly cut grass, fern… Great news. Mouth (neat): punchy, almost nervous, starting on orangey flavours again plus lots of spices and a little wax. It’s also a little salty but not too complex. With water: gets more gingery and peppery, and even waxier. Hints of peat, candied lemons, tea again… The finish is long, peppery and citrusy (more on oranges now)… A very good one in any case, even if feel it’s not too complex. Sweeter and spicier than the Cadenhead. 88 points. (but many aficinados like it better.)

    For sure one of the best Glenugies and compared to some other good Glenugies there is no real flaw in there.
    • Nose
      Citrusy, lemony, mango, passion fruit, pineapples. Pretty fresh and intensive for its age. There are indeed some old books in it but also some sweet and honey notes.
    • Taste
      Unbelievable punchy - peppery, a little salty and some grassy, vegetal notes. Later on touches of fruity notes come up - mostly lemony and green bananas. Very thick and oily. Water is recommended and makes it even more smooth and more aromas come out of it - mostly more fruity ones from tropical fruits and honey.
    • Finish
      Long and burning and again peppery hot. A tad bitter in the end but actually not a problem.

  5. magic_slim scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    One of the best whiskies I have ever tasted (Lindores Whiskyfest 2009).
    • Nose
      Starts on tropical fruits (mangos), later on oranges. Grassy, cake mixture and vanilla, old books in a library. Perfect nose.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Coastal, spicy, a little rough and salty like Clynelish. Oranges, honey and malt.
    • Finish
      Very long and satisfying. Peppery and Salty.
