Dunville’s PX 12YO Single Malt Irish Whiskey
Dunville’s PX 12YO Single Malt Whiskey 70cl 46% ABV
Nose: Layerings of tropical and orchard fruits and light pepper spices, encompassed in soft, powerful but controlled oak, and then a definite hint of Christmas cake that speaks of the quality of the PX sherry hogsheads.
Palate: Softer on the palate than the PX10 release, and a definite improvement on an already spectacular whiskey, this is very accomplished indeed. The softer malt is complimented by the viscous sweetness from the PX casks, with more green apples, freshly cut green grass, banana cake, spiced vanilla custard and that wonderful Dunville’s candied orange grace note accompanying the dried fruits,
raisins, figs and sweet luxurious sherry.
Finish: Medium finish, voluptuous, juicy and chewy. While the warmth from the 46% abv bottling carries those sweet sherry notes through, the final say is reserved for that wonderfully controlled oak which once again reveals itself
in the last lingering moments to reassert its authority on this truly exquisite whiskey.
