    Delicious, sweet and tasty. The emerging spiciness represents a harmonious counterpart to the extreme fruit sweetness. Not a high-flyer, but as already mentioned, extremely tasty and tasty ...

    • Nose
      Reddish amber shines in the Premium Snifter, a sweet fruity note can be perceived from afar. Strawberries with raspberries, fruit salad with trophic fruits, melon with flaked almonds ... The nose is incredibly sweet and characterized by complex fruitiness. The alcohol is wonderfully integrated, but one time or another it shows up with a voluminous bite on the tip of the nose. Hints of cedar wood and leather, minimal toffee with a hint of citrus fruits, velvety vineyard peach and again tropical or Asian fruits.
    • Taste
      The first sip flows softly and mildly through the mouth, flat fruit aromas with slightly spicy wood, emerging peppery sharpness between the lips with a wonderful fruit note which spreads warming on the palate. Delicious and fruity sweet, the subtle spiciness harmonizes wonderfully with the soft and mild fruit mix, only after a few minutes does the spiciness gain volume and make the mouth glow slightly.
    • Finish
      The cozy warmth with the stimulating spiciness lingers on the tongue and the palate for a long time. Creamy, spicy wood tones emerge, brown sugar melts in the mouth, hints of hazelnuts and fresh mint emerge.

    Hach, yes Jim Murray was extremely impressed by 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 fruitiness 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 strongly alcoholic but noticeably. As expected, very fruity. Pickled litchi at the Chinese around the corner. Lots of citrus notes, sour, lime juice. Mixed pickled fruit salad from these aluminum tin cans. Subtle hints of wood and leatheriness. Quite spicy in the mouth at the beginning, but very sweet but not so much vanilla but nice and fruity. That lychee taste again, almost a bit artificial, Haribo Tropifrutti. Very salivary. In the finish this gummy bear tropical mix again. Then slowly become bitter, slightly metallic, slightly hot. Nice single cask, see what Jim Muray likes about it. Not a high-flyer (yet), but shows me that you can turn your gaze to Wales more often. 87 points.

  3. Don Cassi scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nice and full and quite light and sour-fruity on the nose, grapefruit, pineapple and honeydew melon, with a certain creaminess behind it.

    Still sour and fruity in the mouth, strongly reminiscent of peach rings, which intensify on the finish. In the end it remains relatively sweet because hardly any oak was built up due to the short maturation period.
    Length: 3/10

    Great bright fruit bomb that shows the potential of the Welsh neighbors.

    From a blind tasting

    First impression:
    dark amber

    delicious, alcohol well integrated, uncomplicated
    • Nose
      Raisins, plums, passion fruit, mint
    • Taste
      Oloroso sherry fruit juice? Dark chocolate, plum jam, citrus fruits, alcohol slightly noticeable, but not disturbing
    • Finish
      some oak, some fruit, medium length

    -Blind tasting-
    With this nose, I first thought of a Mackmyra from a wicked barrel - but if I'm honest, I have absolutely no idea about it.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Fermented berries, pepper, menthol - and a note that I can't really assign. Go towards green branches and freshly felled conifer. Maybe with a few juniper berries underneath. Looks youthful and a bit rough, but has very pleasant cocoa notes in addition to the fermented fruits.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Strong start with lots of chocolate, toffee and caramel. Very dry, the fruits have disappeared from the nose. Menthol comes up and lays on the tongue.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Relatively short finish, dry and menthol-like, with dry wood, moist forest soil and raisins.
