So much whisky, so little time | Singapore | Tasting Notes

Glenugie 1967 / 1989 Sestante 43% vs Glenugie 1967 / 1989 Sestante 59.5%

Glenugie 1967 / 1989 Sestante 43%

Trying not to be distracted by the reputation of this pair. So. Lots of ripe fruit that veer wonderfully to the tropical – warm mango slices, passion fruit juice, ripe guava, mandarins, a bevy of yellow, red and golden hues. Underline all that with some mineral oil, pencil lead and touches of earth. A winner already but here comes waxed peels, a woody leafy aspect like sliced bay. Bits of juniper bark and pine cones. Its closure was a terrible loss in the vein of Lochside. 91 pts

Glenugie 1967 / 1989 Sestante  59.5%

Take the 43% and magnify it’s aspects. Can first love be bottled? Candied peel of the highest quality. Dried guava, plums and ginger in boatloads. Fruit concentrate and golden nectar stolen from Olympus. Even more pine sap and a cold forest floor stewn with pine needles underfoot. A barest hint of clean white mushrooms. Broken leafy bundles, machine Lubricants, industrial oils, hints of cardamom and spearmint dusty black earth in pots. Charcoal dust. It smashes your senses like a speeding train entering a tunnel. And a beguiling fruitiness tells you its all okay. Such concentration.  93 pts
