Glenugie, Chivas Brothers, Deoch an Doras bottling, 32 year old, 55.4%

Price: $410.00 Issue: Summer 2011 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Recently added to Chivas Brothers' lineup of Cask Strength Edition whiskies, this Eastern Highland single malt from the ‘lost' distillery of Glenugie in the fishing port of Peterhead is perfumed on the nose, with discreet sherry, cocoa, fresh leather, blackcurrants, peaches, and apricots. The palate is initially sweet, with fresh fruit, but old-fashioned cough drops and black coffee notes soon arrive. Very long in the spicy, tannic oak finish. Exclusive to Chivas Brothers' distillery visitor centers and www.maltwhiskydistilleries.com (500 bottles). £250
