Dunville’s PX 12 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Irish Whiskey is finished in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks and bottled at 55% ABV.
A Single Cask bottling of approximately 300 bottles.
Colour – Beautiful deep, dark, rich amber gold. The colour screams of the intensity of what is to come, and it does not lie.
Nose – Full of fruit. First dark fruits, cherries, plums, raisins, figs, then apricots, marzipan, caramelised stewed apples, pear drops and that candied orange grace note that is a constant across the Dunville’s range. The fruits merge with the incoming spices, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and muscovado sugar to give the most glorious Christmas cake aromas, all wrapped up in wonderful clean oak wood.
Palate – Intense soft fruits, black cherries, caramelised orange peel, apple strudel, dates. Perfectly balanced with dark chocolate, demerara sugars and liquorice and a hint of mint, and all the way through that rustic cask char influence and PX sweetness that elevate this whiskey to something truly wonderful.
Finish – The length and intensity of the finish speaks of the quality of those PX casks. The dark fruits, sugars and spices all carry through with the oak char in almost perfect harmony, enveloped in a syrupy PX sweetness that carries the finish through for almost an eternity.
Overall – Dunville’s PX 12 Cask Strength is an intense, perfectly balanced, spicy, fruity, sherry bomb of a whiskey that will sit proudly alongside the very best whiskeys of its genre.
