Whisky Reviews for Penderyn 2011

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.43 points

  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasty, usually quite strong artificial-fruity Brennereicharakter gets here from the barrel neatly over-fried and is directed in the right direction, and neat spiciness is also there. Not cheap, but not outrageous and / or worse than comparable Scots.
    • Nose
      Cinnamon, speculoos, tree needles, marmalade, dried apricots, pepper; with the fruitiness is fresher, goes more towards red grapes / berries, cocktail cherries
    • Taste
      Wood / resin, pepper, first strong exotic-tart-fruity (towards passion fruit), with longer residence time in the mouth then sweeter, jammy (red berries / cherry)
    • Finish
      medium length, warm, pepper, nutmeg, resin, a hint of blackcurrant juice / elderberry

  3. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A wonderfully fruity, creamy and sweet single malt with a pleasant spiciness and depth. Despite the young age of almost 8 years already multi-layered, smooth and round. The alcohol is very well integrated and by no means disturbing or even pungent. Despite the 60% abv, this dram is very well enjoyable without adding any water. Well done!

    I thank Schlumberger Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG for the complimentary sample.

    • Nose
      Fresh and fruity on the nose with red currants, slightly sour apples. apricots and peaches. Lingering notes of vanilla behind, nicely mixed with spiced oak, some tannins and a hint of white pepper. An enticing nose without any alcohol pungency!
    • Taste
      Sweet and fruity on the palate with a load of red berries, sticky peach jam and creamy vanilla. Quite warming due to the high alcohol content, mixed with oak spice and some tannins underneath. Creamy towards the finish with raspberries and a touch of sour red currents.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, warming and creamy with slightly bitter fruit compote, a touch of tannins, nutmeg and spiced oak on the tail.

      With water: There is less fruit coming through when a splash of water is added. Still creamy with vanilla and some notes of ripe peaches. The sweetness on the palate is a bit tamed with less red berries. Some notes of vanilla mingle with oak spice and tannins towards the finish. The slightly warming finish shows medium length with subtle red berries, dry oak and tannins.
