Whisky Reviews for Glenglassaugh Pedro Ximenéz Sherry Wood Finish

- Price-quality a really nice dram, really nice for a sherrybomb lover like myself. One of the best drams I had so far in this price range !
Starts with a lot of dried fruit: raisins, dried figs ... some strawberry compote and a hint of gingerbread
Starts a bit sour but right after that an explosion of red fruits kicks in: strawberry, red berries, in comination with the first sour start even some juniper. Again a quite dominant taste of raisins and gingerbread
The red fruit explosion fades out and gets replaced by milk chocolate and a more nutty finish ... reminds me of the Ritter sport bars with hazelnuts.

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