Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

Glenmorangie SonnaltaGlenmorangie Sonnalta PXJohn Hansell’s website announced a new range of Glenmorangie ”private expressions” today. The Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX will be the first release in this series. It will be finished in Pedro Ximenez  casks, the darkest, richest type of sherry with intense notes of raisins and syrup (dessert wine of course).

It’s said to be fruity (raisins, coconut, banana, apple) and light, sort of an aperitif whisky.

Glenmorangie Sonnalta will be available in travel retail only for around € 70.

I will be reviewing most of the current Glenmorangie expressions (Original, Lasanta, Nectar d’Or, Quinta Ruban, Signet) in the next couple of weeks, by the way.
