60.2% ABV

Nose: White grapes, blueberries, blue raspberries, cherries, blackcurrant cordial, hints of cinnamon.

Tasting: Sweet. Olive oil, blueberries, white grapes, blackcurrants, toast, hints of vanilla. 
Finish: Long. White grapes, honey, blueberries, muscat grapes. 


No, this was not a sherry cask, instead I believe it was a bourbon casked whisky. It's the character of Penderyn that produces that fruity, sweet white grape top note. Very drinkable, slight bitter spiciness on the tongue that makes it interesting and prevents it from being a parade of fruity notes. I like this whisky very much indeed.


I like this a lot.
