Whisky Reviews for Glenglassaugh Pedro Ximenéz Sherry Wood Finish

15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.86 points

  1. HunterRomario scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Blind test.
    Aroma: A very nice scent, very well covered, I think in red wine. The aroma is full, rich, warm and wine-like, even with the touch of sweet peat. The longer I play with the glass, the smell I like more. There are also caraway and aniseed, sweet windyness, light and sweet gumness, a bit like the Ballechin (The Discovery Series). Gourmet juicyness adds another dimension, great, layered scent. (90 b)
    Taste: Beautifully juicy, fruityly acidic, aniseed, with caraway and raisins, sweet guminess, sunburned suds and a nice sherry smud. (88 b)
    Points: 89
    Summary: This whisky has surprised me, has a lot to offer. In the blind test, the brain threads were well ventilated, the Ballechin tip was pretty much beside me, but it was quite similar to me.

  2. Conside scored this whisky 80 points Member Senior

    I tried .... The Pedro Ximenez bottle was poured into the cleric and was shaken well .... That was the impression ...

  3. Achany scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    the nose is promising, nice sherry influence, dark fruits, some chocolate, nice. the first sip was quite disturbing. at first it seemed that there was not much going on. Takes a while until this one kicked in on my taste buds. but than it was really nice. raisins, sweet dark fruits, dried apricots, some traces of nuts, some nice gentle spices from the oak. Finish was sweet and just fine for this NAS dram!

    For me the best out the glenglassaugh wood finish serie !!
    • Nose
      Sweet, nutty, PX sherry nose with the dark fruits and raisins. Nothing new or exeptional so far beside an earthy hint in the background.
    • Taste
      Not bad mouthfeel, reasonable thickness and oily. Rich fruity flavours and sweet barley with a nice spicy touch on top. Good mix.
    • Finish
      Medium sweet barley finish and drying out a little very slow.

  10. LordBellamy scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Nose: toffee, hazelnut, subtle sweetness, some cherry, figs, behind light fruits (pear), metallic, menthol, slightly dull, sometimes changes to burnt rubber, alcoholic, poorly balanced

    Taste: the first Punch through the sweet PX, which is also well interspersed, plum, nut, a little pear and hardly oak

    Finish: very short, here again the PX influence with toffee, caramel, raisins and dried plums, then follow a few bright fruits, behind the back he is very flat and disappears without leaving an impression.

    Water: The nose does not change much with a few drops, the taste will make the PX feel a bit stronger

    Conclusion: Mhh, am I mad as a fan of the 70s + 80s glass eyes? He does not really care about me. The nose is too musty, just the slight gum note, which shows up again and again, does not even say, He is too young for me. Just give the distillate some more time to mature. These were my thoughts on the aroma. But in taste he convinces me a lot better. The is tasty and slightly sweet, can be good drink, just with a few drops of water. So: nothing to sniff and hours of flavor search, but just a malt to drink - 81 points
