Glenugie 32 years old (D.1977, B.2010) Signatory Vintage / 58,6%/ –
Glenugie, once the most easterly Scottish distillery was founded by Donald McLeod & Co in the early 1830s. Just few years later the owners went bankrupt and the distillery was converted into brewery. Whisky production re-started in 1875 but turning point came in the 1930s, when Glenugie was acquired by Seager Evans & Co. (later renamed Long John International) and its whisky became a major component of Long John blends. The distillery was too small and too inefficient to survive the industry downturn and ceased operations in 1983. Here we have whisky distilled on October 15, 1977 and finished in Oloroso sherry butt no. 1 for 90 months. Bottled by Signatory Vintage as part of Cask Strength Collection on March 19, 2010 with an outrun of 670 bottles.
Nose: distinctive sherry notes, raisins, roasted almonds, cocoa powder, black currants, prunes, tobacco, leather, autumn leaves and oak.
Palate: black coffee, dark chocolate, bitter orange marmalade, buckwheat honey, a drop of soy sauce, black pepper, touch of mint and oak.
Finish: long, with notes of mixed dried herbs, black pepper, mint tea and oak tannins.
