The GlenAllachie 12 Year Old PX Sherry Wood Finish Review


30th September 2019
Review of the GlenAllachie 12 Year Old Pedro Ximenez Sherry Wood Finish.

The GlenAllachie 12 Year Old Pedro Ximenez Sherry Wood FinishThe Glenallachie 12 Year Old Pedro Ximenez Sherry Wood Finish in terms of age sits at the top of the new Glenallachie wood finish range, initially matured for over ten years in American Oak Wood Barrels which was then followed by additional maturation in richly seasoned Pedro Ximenez Puncheons.

The Glenallachie 12 Year Old Pedro Ximenez Sherry Wood Finish is bottled at 48% ABV, it is naturally coloured, non-chill-filtered and has an RRP of 54.99.


William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Brown sugared sweetened plums, raisins and sultanas, a wee touch of orange and a whiff of dark chocolate lurking in the background.

Taste: A deliciously rich and vibrant mix of raisins, sultanas, orange infused toffee, gentle oak spice.

Finish: A medium length finish sees the fruit fade out quickly leaving sweet oak spices to linger a little.

Comment: The best of the three single malts in the new Glenallachie wood finish range for me but like the other two I cant help but think that it could have benefitted from a little longer finishing or more lively sherry casks or perhaps this is as good as it gets using the Glenallachie spirit, as it is 54.99 is a big ask for this whisky or indeed any of the three whiskies in the Glenallachie wood finish range. Don't get me wrong it is still a very enjoyable dram if you want to spend 54.99.

SMW Scotch Blended Whisky Score 84/100
