  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This whisky really had potential, the nose is very promising and actually this is being followed up in body and finish.
    Only 'minus-thing' is the strange kind of 'Penderyn-plastic' flavour, as I call it. There must be something strange with the spirit coming out of the Penderyn-distillery.
    In the ones like 'peated', 'Madeira' and 'Sherry' cask, whisky's with lower Abv, the plastic is too dominant, here the dram is saved by the richness of other tastes, luckily.
    After all, still a good one, best Penderyn I've had so far.
    • Nose

      Full, fruity nose, red fruits. Also this typical darkred-coloured winegums... Grapes, prunes, clearly some red wine. Forest fruits. Spicy as well, cinnamon.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Red fruits, but then somehow this strange plastic-kind of taste comes through, which I have experienced in more Penderyn whisky's... Luckily it's that full of other flavours as well, accompanied by the high Abv, which makes this taste of plastic less prominent. Spicy. Creamy, thick, winegums, caramel too.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Still some peppers, fruity, lot's of winegums now, Pretty long, berries. Plastic luckily has disappeared now.

    • Taste
      Plastic, raspberries, creamy - whipped cream, nutmeg, fudge, anise and rummy.

  6. Jaydee scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Excellent well balanced whisky! Fruity nose. The taste combines sweetness and spicyness; hints of red fruit, cherry, vanilla and a bit of oak. Medium finish.
