Whisky Reviews for Glenugie 1966 SV
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.31 points
- 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
- H2H with this one:-
The Glenlochy just shaded it.
- Never did a tasting note for this one before, its long overdue.
- WITH WATER
Even more lively now, sherry to the fore with still the brown sugar and hints of orange, ripe plum and juicy black raisins.
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.
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
Burnt brown sugar, caramel, very resinous , dark orange liqueur, milk chocolate, prune, dark raisins , dark treacle.
You get the picture, its very rich.
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.
Long and rich. mouth coating to the end.

- 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!!!
Full and rich, sherry notes and liquer bon-bon (reduced: dried fruit and pure chocolate very complex).
Pungy, sweet and intense (reduced: chocolate flavors, dry and very tasty).
Very nice, reasonably long with a wonderfull echo of dried fruit and oak.
