Whisky Reviews for Penderyn 2012

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.11 points

  1. Torfding scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The color is always awesome, I rarely had a whisky from the port keg in the glass, which has such a beautiful roséweinige color.
    The nose is great with the typical notes of Port, salty caramel and fruits (although I spontaneously had salted fruits in mind here). Sweet in the mouth, red fruits (some strawberries underneath). Long finish, not so red, but rather dark, spicy chocolate, in the aftermath taste much more licorice after.
    Young and therefore not cheap, but unexpectedly delicious, even if it lacks some depth, the alcohol is felt, but still holds back halfway.

  2. Don Cassi scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Great, full and sweet-fruity malt with strawberries and peach without great complexity.
    Length: 3/10

    Grade: 2+

  3. Abadon05 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful color that immediately reminds you of a rose wine.
    The youth can't be completely hidden, but it's nice that the port wine influence is there, but not too dominant.
    Especially with the addition of water, the young age comes through in the form of the alcohol sharpness, which remains despite the addition of water. Instead, it loses depth and aromas.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Cherry notes spread across the nose. Likewise dark chocolate notes. And a stinging of the alcohol strength can also be heard. Some honey and minimal light fruit notes.
      Water is not so good for him because he withdraws completely.
    • Taste
      81 81
      At first cautiously, but then the alcohol pushes hard.
      But also sweet notes of honey and strawberry.
      Water changes little here; on the contrary, it loses aromas and the alcohol remains sharp.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Sweet, but also dry finish.
      This is where the port wine influence can be felt most strongly for me

    • Nose
      The port wine really comes into its own. I have cherry, some wood with subtle dark chocolate and candied fruit with beeswax.
    • Taste
      Here, too, cherry notes and wood. In addition, honey with a little chilli and again light dark chocolate, as well as a floral note that I cannot assign.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Also here cherry notes with wood. There are also dark berries with dark chocolate and spicy notes with red pepper.

    • Nose
      92 92
      Very nice color: an old rose. Not seen yet.

      Now smell it. Madness! A fruit bomb. Sweet red fruits. Who knows this from France: Grenadine.

      In addition lemon zest and Eichwürze.

      A very intense and very harmonious nose, wow.
    • Taste
      91 91
      a first mild and round start. Slightly sweetish. With a little delay, the sweet red fruits come. Delicious.
      Then the tongue starts to tingle and the oak is there. Very pleasant and complements very well with the sweetness. In addition, almonds, cane sugar and a subtle salbenote in the background.
    • Finish
      90 90
      medium length finish. There remains a fruity bitterness, always pleasant. With some oak spice on the tongue and in the throat. Almonds.
