Glenglassaugh PX Finish

The Glenglassaugh distillery launched their Wood Finishes series in late 2017, marking the first time they've ever released cask-finished expressions. Very exciting stuff! This particular bottling was initially aged in bourbon casks before being moved over to Pedro Ximenéz for up to two years.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Sponge cake drenched in honey and hot warm chocolate sauce. Some strawberry sweetness.

Palate Chocolate buttons, brown sugar and juicy apricot. A hint of earthy floral notes.

Finish Sticky Toffee Pudding and blueberries.

Reviews for Glenglassaugh Pedro Ximenéz Sherry Wood Finish
Best sweet whisky under £100
My favourite "under £100"whisky of 2019 + 2020. If you like them sweet - this is for you. I would personally drink this over Glendronach's Allardice even if they were equally priced! I've had a or 3 Allardices and at least six bottles of this stuff (with another 4 in the cupboard.) So while I can't get poetic about whisky - I can certainly put it away!

Sticky, silky smooth and laden with raisiny, Sherry flavour.
I've tried hundreds over the years or all ages and regions, and this is my absolute favourite whisky.
It's sticky, silky smooth and laden with raisiny, Sherry flavour.
Coupled with some Lindt Dark Orange chocolate, it's just the perfect ending to a meal or an evening treat.

Amazing value and far too easy to drink!
I've nearly come to the end of the one bottle I bought. I wish I'd bought 10 as it is so nice! I did manage to find another at a higher price and I will Tey and hold onto it as it really should only go up in value. There is no age but I would suggest it is at least 15. The bourbon has given it a smooth sweetness like a good toffee sauce and the pedro ximenez has just rounded it off so as not to be overly sweet.
On the nose I get wheetabix made with warm milk! Obviously I'm not a professional taster but that was the first thing I got!

Sweetness overload
Classic sherry notes. maple syrup, vanilla, dark fruits, coffee biscuit, quite Macallan-y.
palate was a little bit thin and shortly delivered w.r.t the nose despite at 46%.
finish: dark fruits, christmas cake, medium.

cask influence overpower malt character. NAS is a let down.

Really good! Surprised & impressed
Some history...

Took a sample of Glenglassaugh Torfa, as I'd never had anything from the distillery and I'm a geek, like that. I was pleasantly surprised by it and so ordered a bottle of the Revival. Sadly, a sulphurous edge rendered it barely good enough to be added to tea and that's been that for over a year.

Took a sample of this, as I couldn't resist the PX label (a wonderful thing, particularly with peated whiskies) but still wasn't expecting a lot.

However, it's really good. Love the espresso & chilli-chocolate finish - reminds me of the Dalmore 12, possibly my favourite 'budget' single malt.

It's a solid buy imo
Glenglassaugh PX Sherry Wood Finish, bottled at 46% . This is my first time trying a Glenglassaugh . Apparentky these wood finished series released in 2017 are there first time releasing cask finished expressions. Here we go.

On the Nose is Thick honey. i feel like I'm sticking my nose in a honey jar. Little bit of rum cake. Dark chocolate syrup. A sugar cane sweetness. Red apples after some time in the glass as well as a sweet toffee .


On the palate. Some oak spice on initial impact , great mouth feel. thick and oily. Gosh 46% is so lovely on a Single Malt. Some dark chocolate and brown sugar. vanilla and there's a fruit presence that buried a bit. it's like a chocolate covered raisin. little bit of cake batter.


The finish is medium-long , drying. full of Hershey's chocolate syrup and toffee. some cinnamon sets in.

This is very good. It's an NAS but it tastes older. If I had to guess, according to my palate , it feels like a 15 year old. So I'm sure there's older juice in here and/or the quality of Casks used were excellent. Either way I'm a fan, and will probably get a bottle eventually or at the very least try more #Glenglassaugh.
