    a nice dram to treat yourself to. However, nothing that I would necessarily want to experience again. Somehow the malt is missing something. especially since I don't feel him well integrated for 46%. The Alc is noticeable. Slight bitterness at the end.

    Penderyn Icons of Wales No. 8 Hiraeth, 46% alc. Original bottling. Aging: Post-aging in bourbon casks

    Nose: Fruity and floral, yes, really flowery. I find lemons and limes, some pineapple and vanilla, plus pepper and caramel, delicate honey. In addition, hay and summer meadow flowers, malt and somehow I have to think of cough drops with lemon (throat dragon).

    Palate: Continues the impression from the nose quite well. Citrus fruits, honey and vanilla, plus caramel and a pleasant spiciness. I taste black pepper, ginger and nutmeg, with eucalyptus in the background. The spices are a bit stronger than in the nose, but I find the whisky to be balanced.

    Finish: Rather short, at most medium long. The already known spices have almost completely disappeared, only slightly spicy cinnamon is still noticeable. In addition honey, malt and yellow fruit aromas.

    Conclusion: Fruity, pleasant and quite round. Not particularly complex, but I don't expect that from a young whisky either. A nice experience. 84/100 points (2022)

  11. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    on marshmallow, sweet spices, vanilla, drying dry oak
    blocked;
    it's more interesting, on the sour candy, blackcurrant, red fruits,
    the STR (oak barrel having kept red wine) brings notes of ripe and sweet fruits, vanilla and white pepper potentiate; it's soft on the palate, viscous, still tangy
    final:
    fine and quite short, on the same scents that are lost in the bottom of the glass
