Glenugie 25 Years Old, 51.8% abv
First of all, history indicates that Glenugie never had a house bottling of its single malt, in its latter days concentrating on its Long John blend. So every issue of Glenugie single malt was from a private bottler. So who released this bottling? My vote goes to - - - Duncan Taylor 1985 Glenugie 25 Sherry Cask (released in 2006) 51.5% http://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/P-6658.aspx . Rich heather honey, Crême Brulé. Amazing!!
