Another whisky to be cherished and shared only with good friends (those who can be relied upon not to drown it with water or freeze with an ice cube) Sonnalta's gone and effortlessly knocked Highland Park 18yo off the top spot for me.
It's a 'yummy' whisky if that makes sense ... it starts with a rush of sweetness - obviously contributed by señor Pedro Ximenes - followed by coffee and chocolate notes, followed by "just a spot more please" or "un poco más, por favor".
For the cash-strapped whisky drinker it's not cheap (about £65 a litre in World of Whisky) but it's worth every penny. A gorgeous and sophisticated whisky from an adventurous distillery. I can't afford another bottle until my birthday rolls around but I'll not grudge them a penny of the cost price (while hoping they manage to hold it below £70/litre).
Drugs: Just say no; Sonnalta: Just say yes.
