Whisky Reviews for Penderyn Peated

- Well, the label says 'peated', but those peat influences you have to look for with a magnifying glass. What remains is a soft, easy-drinking and accessible sweet and fruity whisky. Not very complex, but no penalty to sip away.
In contrast to the name, I initially do not smell peat at all: Fruity, light leather, citrus, fresh. Then very slightly something that tends to peat, and rubber. But it also looks perfumed, lavender, and soap / detergent.
Soft, sweet, toffee. Very light pepper, and tropical fruit.
Light pepper, reasonably short.Toffee, and now a touch of licorice, so still something of peat-influences ...
- The smoke is in no way dominant, it also allows the sometimes very subtle other aromas to come into their own. He cannot completely hide his youth. But makes you want more.
initially classic sweetness with lots of vanilla, barley malt topped with smoke, more light to medium-bodied
and sweet smoke with notes of smoked, brief flashing of caramel and baileys, salty elements, then white oak, banana, honeydew melon and some gala melon, green apple, very fine spice, the delicate flavors fluctuate between fruity and malty character, the basic tenor is determined by a slight smokiness and sweetness
mild, medium-strong organic smoke, dry citrus notes of kumquats and grapefruit, sweet malt,
slightly spicy sweetness, with oak and cinnamon, ash, vanilla, bitterness after liquorice, light apple fruit, roses
the organic smoke remains, ash, dry, slightly chocolatey bitterness, anise, again apple and salty implications, cinnamon pear compote removed
Cedar seasoning, again grapefruit, stimulating taste and quite long-lasting
- A really good whisky, which is very different from its "brothers" from Islay. A very good example of the increasingly strained concept of the terroir.
The whisky offers interesting aromas of apple, white grape and fig. The peat is discreetly recognizable in the background.
In contrast to the aroma, the smoke is in the foreground. Then the fresh aromas of apple and pear emerge, making the whisky surprisingly light.
The finish is long and the fruity aromas dominate.
- Very enjoyable and I will certainly look to buy a bottle of this
Vanilla, light,peaty, medicinal(iodine?), quite vegetal, sugary in a candied way, a near metallic note.
With water-much more metallic.
Light smoke that gradually intensifies, light sweetness, spicy.
With water-smoke tempered, a hint of metal but not in a negative way.
Long, smoky, spicy, light sweetness. With water the finish isn't quite as long
