  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=314 Color: Full gold / light amber Nose: tobacco fruit leather! Absolutely spicy, tobacco aromas with invigorating leather, sweet fruit of mango, papaya, lime, green gooseberry, avocado and tons of vanilla. Subordinated but also rose petals, flowerbed and creamy-soft honey. Tobacco & Vanilla rule this great nose! Taste: Spicy and slightly perfumed. With lots of wood, rope, pepper, liquorice, espresso and dark chocolate. In addition a fruity thick jam! Overall, the palette is getting fresher and with a lot of mint it goes into the finish. Finish: Long, fresh, spicy and woody. Dark notes dominate the finish; Dark oak, liquorice, cocoa, mocha, coffee and great fruit notes contribute to this taste experience. 93 points N: 94P / G: 92P / F: 92P

    WITH WATER

    Nose

    Even more lively now, sherry to the fore with still the brown sugar and hints of orange, ripe plum and juicy black raisins.

    Palate

    Complex, so much going on and ever so slightly rough because there is a battle going on between the  sweet fruit and slight bitterness from the old sherry cask.

    Finish

    Still long and syrupy

     This is great and for me bottled exactly at the right time before it started getting too woody.

    My only  negative is that for me while the sherry is good it overpowers the Glenugie profile a little, but that is being picky

    An excellent aged Glenugie
    • Nose
      Burnt brown sugar, caramel, very resinous , dark orange liqueur, milk chocolate, prune, dark raisins , dark treacle.

      You get the picture, its very rich.
    • Taste
      Wow that is powerful but creamy and syrupy with it, the orange and dark treacle are on the palate but its lighter than the nose suggests.

      Very zesty with hints of raspberry sherbet and fried peels, orange/lemon.
    • Finish
      Long and rich. mouth coating to the end.

  5. The Macallan scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    The best Glenugie I ever tasted and came across, a rareness of great class. A pitty that they are hard to find. A true ACE!!!
    • Nose
      Full and rich, sherry notes and liquer bon-bon (reduced: dried fruit and pure chocolate very complex).
    • Taste
      Pungy, sweet and intense (reduced: chocolate flavors, dry and very tasty).
    • Finish
      Very nice, reasonably long with a wonderfull echo of dried fruit and oak.
