    Penderyn Madeira Finish 46% SMWW.

    30ml sample at home, June 2022.

    Fairly pale yellow.

    Aroma is gluey in a good way, sweet wine - more moscatel than madeira, biscuity, touch of nectarine, sometimes lightly furry sometimes waxy green apple. Quite complex, always quite pleasant. Good.

    Taste is so soft at the abv on impact, becoming lightly prickly towards the finish. Then immediately on the swallow there’s a grapey sweetness before a musty oaky finish that starts turning bitter after just a couple of sips. Then it keeps getting more ‘Stop & Grow’ bitterness until it gets over the top. There’s also a peppery charred flavour that lingers.

    Eventually lands on being quite sweet up-front, clashing with an assertive woody bitterness. Just not quite coming together.

    It’s a pity but this just doesn’t work that well for me. If you take a loooong wait between sips the bitterness doesn’t get the chance to build as much, but that’s not the way I like to drink whisky! It’s drinkable but not an experience I’d like to replicate repeatedly 3.1/74
