Glenugie – lost distillery

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * News

Glenugie distilleryA few weeks ago, Jean-Luc from Connosr told me about a new series in their online magazine Connosr Distilled. I was asked to present one of the lost distilleries.

While I have a few favourites among the closed / silent distilleries, most of them have quite a lot of fame and are well-known: Brora, Port Ellen, Caperdonich, St. Magdalene… So I decided to go for a lesser known distillery that is even rarer and surprised me a couple of times with its outstanding quality: Glenugie.

    Very interesting, Ruben. I have been looking at some (still available) bottlings and your article rekindled this my interests.

  • Chris: Based on price and transparency alone I'd pick this over the shoddy HP Dark Origins any day. Benromach continues to win me over. While I may not drink
  • Roberto Sikora: Benromach seem to do great things these days. Thumbs up for an uncommon age statement!
  • Fredrik: I recently made a promise not to buy or try NAS whisky anymore. It will sadly go unnoticed but that´s how I feel about this.
