Whisky Reviews for Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX

  1. DavidH. scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    I would like to give 1 point for the `Price` part of the review but it would bring down my overall score of the whisky itself which I find a well 88 points.

    A great example which shows that Price and Presentation have nothing in common with the rating of a whisky. I don´t rate the bottle nor the price tag, I rate the dram.

  7. hs305 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    [August, 2012]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 63 Euro in April, 2012.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 92,5.  My notes state one of the best modern sherry profiles I had so far.  Absolutely clean, flawless and suberbly balanced.

  10. Jonkers scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The balance of this whisky is perfect. However, if you see what the current (14.11.2016) purchase price of a Sonnalta PX Private Collection is, then you may wonder if so much money may be spent on a mi rather mediocre whisky ..... But perhaps he is so expensive because it has become a "collector's item".
    • Nose
      Sherry and oak. Brown sugar and hints of dark fruit (cherries) and chocolate. A little bit of butter.
    • Taste
      Sherry and the sweetness of chocolate. Also dark fruit like cherries. Hints of raspberry.
    • Finish
      A medium finish with some salinity. Then sweet with cherries and raspberries. Sherry and in the end hints of sulfur.
