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.
Full, fruity nose, red fruits. Also this typical darkred-coloured winegums... Grapes, prunes, clearly some red wine. Forest fruits. Spicy as well, cinnamon.
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.
Still some peppers, fruity, lot's of winegums now, Pretty long, berries. Plastic luckily has disappeared now.
