Whisky Reviews for Penderyn 2008 SMWS 128.6

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.00 points

  1. FernetBranco scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    I have not had many Welsh Whiskys to date that have shot me ... but this Penderyn has absolutely convinced me. The initial taste and the body was outstanding. Tingling on the tongue with an incredible punch! Sweet ... creamy ... fruity. Sensational malt. With about 80 GBP issue price no special offer - but worth every penny to me.

    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Brilliant rose gold
    Flavour profile: Spicy & sweet

    The nose had the deep sweetness of cinder toffee, dried
    dates, trifle, marshmallows and Black Forest cherry cake with chocolate
    shavings; it also had dessert wine and a furniture restorer’s workshop. The
    palate found old books in libraries, cherry brandy, Christmas pudding,
    mincemeat pies and after-dinner chocolate mints. The reduced nose had crème
    caramel and syrup tart, developing into spicy Oddfellows sweets, After Shock
    and rumbling, reverberating resonances of leather handbags, pipe tobacco and
    raisins. Intriguingly, this whisky emerged from the cask with a natural haze.
    It is perfectly delicious. We could not bring ourselves to chill-filter and
    risk losing complexity.

    Drinking tip:  After
    dinner – ideally after Christmas dinner
