    Hach, yes Jim Murray was extremely taken with this whisky in 2019 and voted it the best single cask in Europe in his Bible. The bottling was only intended for Germany and was allowed to mature in an ex-Madeira cask. I expect an extreme fruit bomb, especially since the spirit of Penderyn already brings a lot of fruit with it and the bottlings are still very young. He will probably not get 96.5 points from me. Still, I really like the style of the distillery.
    Despite almost 60% in the nose not very alcoholic but noticeable. As expected, very fruity. Pickled lychee around the corner from the Chinese. Lots of citrus notes, sour, lime juice. Mixed pickled fruit salad from these tin cans. Subtle hints of wood and leatheriness. In the mouth it is quite spicy at the beginning, but very sweet but not very vanilla, but nice and fruity. Again this lychee taste, almost a bit artificial, Haribo Tropifrutti. Very salivating. This gummy bear-tropical mix again in the finish. Then slowly become bitter, slightly metallic, slightly sharp. Nice single cask, understand what Jim Muray likes about it. Not a high-flyer (yet), but show me that you can look to Wales more often. 87 points.
