Whisky Reviews for Glenugie 1967 Ses
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.37 points
- http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=314 Color: amber Nose: Similar to the 66s Signatory, also here with lots of tobacco, but much more fruit! Orange, blood orange, strawberry, wild cherry, tobacco, leather, wood, vanilla, slightly earthy and with moss and woods. Peppery blue berries and some smoke - wow, just awesome !! Taste: Starts spicy, fruity and full of power. Wood, leather, tobacco, dark fruits, honey, malt, jam, balsamico, pepper, red pepper, etc. - all together in a simply ingenious composition - fantastic! Finish: Very long - dry, fruity and still mildly seasoned. Again tobacco, wood, mocha, coffee, liquorice, plums, wild berries, leather and nuts. This fantastic malt leaves us enchanted! 95 points N: 95P / G: 95P / F: 94P
- Perfect. Ogromen.Vzryv from the first sip. Very long aftertaste.
- Glenugie 1967/1989 (59.5%, Sestante ‘bird label’ sherry) Colour: amber. Nose: much more sherry, obviously. Lots of coffee and smokiness again but also quite some old rancio (old Maury), smoked tea, orange cake. Huge notes of orange liqueur arising, as well as passion fruit, papayas, pineapple… This one is much more demonstrative than the 1968. Superb notes of pine needles, eucalyptus, camphor… Very old Chartreuse (Tarragones), old Montrachet… This is grand, no doubt, both complex and extravagant. Mouth: oh yes, this palate is just as fab as the 1968’s, maybe even better. Something clearly ‘Lochside-esque’ on the fruity side (both fresh and dried) but also with tons of spices. Great notes of figs. Really multilayered – please see the 1968, it’s almost the same but with even more complexity now and also a slight saltiness – like a beautiful final somersault. Fabulous whisky that keeps developing for ages. 95 points.
- It's definitely great and punchy but probably not everyone's first choice.
Nutty, citrusy, lemony with some old books
Spicy, peppery, nutty, citrusy, lemony, vegetal and even grassy and vegetal notes. Some cardboard notes show up too. Water recommended - actually lots of water. With water it's still burning but becomes much smoother and more drinkable and most of all looses the cardboardy taste but there are still old books.
Long and burning - still grassy and a tad bitter notes
- One of the best whiskies I have ever tasted and one of the best money can buy.
Wow, complex, sweet and fruity with sherry aromas at first nosing.
Notes of passion fruit and orange juice. Smells like skittles confectionery. A whiff of smoke is present as well. Changes a lot. Notes of tobacco, coffee and leather are present as well.
A perfect nosing whisky that gives you fun and pleasure for a very long time.
Wow again. Both sweet and powerful at first mouthfeel - it is pure sherry power, complex and warming from deep inside. Tastes like sitting in a smoky bar. With the second sip it is both very fruity (orange and passion fruit) and very spicy. Simply great whisky.
Long, complex, remaining pleasant.
