The Dramble reviews Langatun 2016 PX Sherry Finish

Bottle Name: Langatun 2016 PX Sherry Finish

ABV: 49.12%
Distillery: Langatun
Region: Europe Glass Weight: 648g

A single cask release from Langatun that has spent some time in a Pedro Ximenez sherry cask (#564). Bottled at higher (to 2 decimal places!) ABV of 49.12% than the distillery’s core expressions and with 490 bottles produced. There’s 1 available via Highfern for £82.98, or more than 1 (I presume) from The Whisky Exchange for £83.95.

Nose: Flambe orange and crepe suzette sit with raisins, plums and fig rolls. Cedar wood provides aromatic wood spicing whilst shaved chocolate is joined by crunchy toffee. Simple, but effective. The addition of water presents Terry’s Chocolate Orange (It’s not Terry’s, it’s mine), together with vanilla buttercream and hazelnut swirls.

Taste: The arrival presents a welcome viscosity leading into dark cherries, chocolate torte, cinnabons and dry peppery oak. The development reveals clove oil and a selection of plump raisins and sultanas. Water softens things up quickly with juicy red and black berries alongside bourbon biscuits.

Finish: Medium with ginger and clove led baking spice and lingering berry sweetness.

The well-judged PX finish on this Langatun brings with it an excellent balance of sweetness and spice throughout. And the ABV bump is also highly welcome, allowing the weight the of the underlying distillate to shine. Me likes it.
