Sonnalta PX is the 1st release from the Private Collection, which is a range of ongoing limited edition's released by master distiller Dr. Bill Lumsden.
Meaning Generous in Scottish Gaelic.
Matured for 10 years in American white Oak and then finished in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks for 2 years.
Nose: Rich Sherry wood, treacle tart, blood ornge marmalade, ginger cake, aromatic spices, honey roasted nuts, cinder toffee, cigar box, deep sultana, raisin, dried dates and fig jam on buttery granary toast.
Palate: A juicy and buttery delivery with liquid fruitcake, treacle and gingerbread. More dark marmalade and big spicy and aromatic oak, a lovely rich body/mouthfeel with sticky toffee pudding, sherry soaked chocolate raisins and toasted coconut and vanilla emerging.
Finish: Rich chocolate-mocha with sticky dates and ripe figs, lots of aromatic wood and sweet spice, treacle and ginger.
A lush and aromatic sticky sherry bomb of a Glenmorangie, a sort of supercharged version of the La Santa Sherry wood that is part of the core range, well worth seeking out this limited release if you can thoughas this is Glenmorangie at its best.
