Glengoyne Pedro Ximénez (PX) Cask Finish whisky review: This PX cask finished is a lot more balanced than I’d hoped and the PX influence is really quite light here for my liking. Zesty, fruity and spicy makes me feel this one has been matured in refill casks first, hence the finishing. Doesn’t feel particularly youthfull however – this is quite an accomplished dram with some complexity to boot. 84/100

Jura Seven Wood (42%, OB, 2018)

Jura Seven Wood whisky review: A little disappointing, the nose seemed OK but hardly worth it after that. It was hard to place any defined flavours and the whole thing seemed quite watery/watered-down in flavour. I think my expectations were met here and this seems to be the bin-end or infinity bottle for Jura’s leftover, random and mostly worn-out casks. 77/100
