Glenglassaugh Pedro Ximenez Sherry Wood Finish Review

Glenglassaugh Pedro Ximenez Sherry Wood Finish The first of four new wood finishes from Glenglassaugh Distillery, this first one finished in Pedro Ximenez Sherry wood.

I was lucky enough to try this originally whilst eating a fabulous meal on Sandend Beach near the Distillery at Portsoy, but did not take notes at the time, however I have tried it again in my normal comfy home office.

Seriously treacle rich, with treacle from the tin and in tasty treacle scones, lots of the underlying mineral notes that I love in Glenglassaugh.

Available at specialists such as Master of Malt and others.

Thanks to Glenglassaugh for the sample.

Tasting Notes & Details


And straight away there’s sweetness, an underlying fresh cut grass and riverbank note is joined with a wet stone mineral note all wrapped up with treacle scones and the slightly metallic taste of a freshly opened red tin of Tate and Lyle treacle.


More of that metallic treacle and mineral wet stone, there’s still a lovely sweetness and that riverbank note again, a touch of doughy scones


Lasting mineral rich wet stone and light treacle
