Glenugie Distillery (Closed 1983)
Oak is not as prevailing on the nose as on the palate. An exotic profile. Reminds me of Irish whiskey. Interesting richness. Avoid water.
Gordon & MacPhail
1968, 43 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Nose: Malty. Cereal. Toasted bread. Very farmlike. Hay loft. Wet dog. Some floral notes coming through like after a gentle rain in a garden. Dried fruit. Raisins and apricot. Dried apples.
Palate: Thick, rich. An explosion of exotic fruit. Passion fruit, guava. Dark chocolate.
Finish: Drying on oak. A bitter edge.
Comment: Oak is not as prevailing on the nose as on the palate. An exotic profile. Reminds me of Irish whiskey. Interesting richness. Avoid water.
Nose: Tart fruitiness balanced with Rye-like notes. Dusty, grainy, cereals.
Palate: Full and sweet. Peppery. Aniseed top notes. Vaguely smoky?
Finish: Hot. Fennel. Imps. Bertie Bassett's hat. More manageable with water.
Comment: Like kissing your lover after they've finished off an entire family pack of Liquorice Allsorts.
