    Also, you have the honor of displaying the badge on your blog.


    1. I’ve tried the Stronachie 10 and the 18 I think. To be honest they didn’t impress me much to begin with but I enjoyed far more the second time around. Sometimes find it takes a while to get to know a whisky!

  2. Hi Neill,

    Would like to point out some inaccuracies with your review of the North Star PX.
    As a Technical Specialist in the Generous Wines and Vinegars of DO Montilla-Morliles and a Certified Sherry Educator I have a duty to do this.
    I can appreciate you can’t

    Montilla lies right at the heart of Andalucia and along with neighbouring Meriles, it forms a ‘Denominacion de Origen’ wine region.

    Montilla-Moriles is located in the province of Córdoba in an enclave located in the center of Andalucia, less than an hour from Malaga, Seville, Cordoba and Granada. Centered around the cities of Montilla and Moriles, although not exclusively since it includes 15 other municipalities

    Montilla, like Sherry, is made by adding a neutral grape spirit to fermenting wine before ageing in European Oak casks. Maturation must be for a minimum of two years and often takes place in traditional Solera systems.

    Not all wines in Montilla-Moriles have neutral grape spirit added to them and there is no minimum maturation requirement of 2 years for PX.

    Grapes can reach a potential 15% alcohol by volume when harvested and I have drank PX with an average age of 27 years that has been through a solera system that was 15% ABV

    The Pedro Ximénez grape is very versatile.
    It can be used to produce the full range of wines from the DOP Montilla-Moriles.
    From biologically aged Fino (dry and unfortified wines), Amontillados wines, (with biological then oxidative aging) Olorosos, Palos Cortados wines to sweet wines PX wines.
    In addition, the D.O. Montilla-Moriles protects several products without ageing also made with pedro ximénez grapes: young white wines and more recently tinaja wines – the name comes from the traditional storage system, in earthen jars at the beginning and, later, of prefabricated cement

    Many thanks,


    1. Hi Erik,

      Thanks for taking the time to read my review and to provide your feedback.

      You will appreciate I’m sure that I wanted to give my readers a brief sense of what went into the making of the product in question.

      While I understand that not all wine from the region has neutral grape spirit added, I am talking specifically about a fortified wine in this case, though having read back my review I understand that I made more of a general statement on the matter.

      I recently published my 200th review and I would be a fool to think I hadn’t got some things wrong along the way, especially when I occasionally venture into less familiar territory.

      Thanks again for getting in touch. When I get the chance I will research the topic again and make any corrections necessary.
