Whisky Reviews for Glengoyne Pedro Ximénez Sherry Casks

16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.73 points

  1. LeChiffre scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    The whisky shows really interesting and tasty hints. Unfortunately it lacks in the taste but a bit of complexity, it is delicious but also a bit boring. The finish continues this impression. With a bit more age, it could be a very good malt, so it's definitely good, but also does not stand out from the crowd.

  2. Don Cassi scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    The nose starts with a typical PX composition: lovage, meat broth, some wood polish, more on the spicy side.

    In the mouth it continues to be relatively full and spicy and peppery. In the background, light orange notes fight their way forward, which discharge as a surge in the finish and are underlined by chocolatey oak.
    Length: 5/10

    Overall nice, wood-heavy malt, which is similarly spicy as its brothers from the standard range, but also adds juicy fruit notes (and is also more intense).

    Grade: 2+

    The sherry is rushing, as if the wine was poured into the malt ... All the same, I wanted, as if the sherry malt would embellish a little. Fully justifies its name))
    The taste and aftertaste are very bright and expressive, although sherry aging is not my favorite.

  5. Svarttt scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Neat on the nose. In terms of taste, it can't quite keep up. Decent dram for "on the side".

  7. Islaysmoke scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    I think a well-balanced all-day dram. The PX finish is not overly prominent.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Fresh citrus notes, cereals, new oak and a lot of vanilla.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Caramel sweetness, fruitiness (maybe grape), spiciness and again lemons.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium long, sweet sherry notes, some chocolate aromas with acid, again the lemons.

      honey, cherries, ginger, hot, peach, ripe banana, brown sugar, mocha, vanilla

  9. fgg scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Too bad, the nose is pretty nice but the taste and finish do not do the nose justice.
    • Nose
      87 87
      The apples and pears that I also saw in other basic range of Glengoyne, but now accompanied by some caramel, raisins, and tropical fruit. And there is something earthy behind it, noteworthy. It has a sulfurous edge.
    • Taste
      82 82
      On the flat side. It fits the nose but is much less complex.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Short and flat.
