Tasting Notes by markjedi1

The Sonnalta PX is, like the Lasanta, finished on sherry. In this case, it was a Pedro Ximinez sherry cask. The Sonnalta PX was originally released in the duty free range (hence the Private Collection credo), but by now can be found in retail as well.

It is less creamy and less sweet than the Lasanta, but very expressive indeed. Oranges, toffee, raisins and some mint. Flints, even. Gooseberries, roasted nuts, quite a bit of green banana and apricots. Acacia honey and corn flakes. Shuffles towards brown sugar. Develops nicely in the glass and easily surpasses the Lasanta in terms of complexity.

It fills the mouth completely and explodes with vanilla, coffee, oranges, grapefruit and wood berries. The whole is lightly peppered. This is almost a liqueur, almost syrupy.

The finish is long and zesty.

At last a Glenmo that is really succesful in my book. This is simply delicious and very fit to accompany dessert (chocolate mousse for example). About 50 EUR. Thanks to Ruben for the sample.
