Glengoyne PX Cask Finish Single malt Review

Glengoyne PX Cask Finish Single malt Another from the Global Travel Retail range from Glengoyne this is the PX Cask Finish, matured initially in European and American Oak before being finished in ex Pedro Ximinez Sherry casks.

I tend to prefer PX sherry to oloroso both in terms of drinking the sherry and in terms of the effect the casks have on the whisky i like to drink. PX tends to avoid those rubbery notes and goes sweeter, whereas oloroso can either be great or awful.

Oh my this is one tasty drop of whisky, lots and i mean lots, of juicy fruity notes at first then dark chocolate and chilli and dark chocolate mousse, this is an utterly delicious dram, it's got that touch of bitter but really sweet element from PX sherry and so far this has been my favourite in the range, it truly is delicious.

Check the Duty Free shop for this the next time you are passing through to see what you think.

Thanks to Glengoyne for the sample

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

There is a delicious sweetness coming from this first, juicy dates and apricots, plum halves and peach halves in juice, dark chocolate with chilli, theres so much fruit in here it is like an overflowing tray of fruit with a hint of treacle toffee.

Palate

Oh yum, this is soft and delicious dark chocolate mousse wrapped around a summer berry compote, peach halves in juice again and those juicy dates and apricots have come back again, soft, sweet, fruity, juicy, yum

Finish

Chocolate mousse, fruits, hints of pepper
