  1. Markdavies scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Slightly muted nose, a little heat and white peach.
    Very smooth and rounded on first sip, moves to hints of spice and a touch of vanilla. Finishes well with a good lingering depth

    • Nose
      I clearly smell LOTS of fruit! Think of citrus fruits like bloodoranges, lemon and lime peels. But also some exotic fruits like pineapple. This all is complemented with vanilla and sultanas. I also scent a herbal note.
    • Taste
      Very smooth. It starts off with sweet fruit, vanilla and oak. White pepper and green herbs are taking over next. Especially at the end it tastes like eucalyptus.
    • Finish
      Medium-long and warm. Some vanilla and ginger. And the green herbs keep lingering aswell.

    Beautiful fruity nose, soft palate with toasty elements and lingering fresh vanilla

    After a few tastings I decided to use this one in longdrinks and cocktails mostly - not really my taste otherwise, too young, too alcoholic.

    Alkoholic, smells quite young, behind that some tropical fruits and vanilla

    it starts rather sharp and bitter, after that the impression of the nose continues - tropical fruits like pineapple and peaches appear, mixed with subtle sweetness from sugar and Vanilla

    rather short, pineapple and alcohol are the mist dominant

    First Penderyn, interesting to have tasted the time ... one of my favorites he will, this bottling, at least not :-)

      Phew you have to keep your trunk clean, very reserved.
      Apple, no alcohol, subtle tropical fruit.
    • Taste
      76 76
      Tropical fruits, pineapple. Sugary sweetness, hint of woody notes.
      Alcohol is there, but still very restrained.
    • Finish
      75 75
      In short, the apple comes back dry. Remaining slightly sprightly.
