TASTING NOTES

Nosing this rich bronze coloured whisky reveals that Penderyn’s unique green apple, banana and tropical fruits have to share the limelight with crème brûlée and apparent fortified wine.  In the taste, it is intensely sweet to begin, then rich fruity and vanilla flavours emerge. This is a big, robust yet remarkably smooth whisky (try adding just a drop or two of water into its 50% strength). A melange of flavours gradually fades into a long finish with a creamy, vanilla-like aftertaste. A rewarding dram!

This is the first Penderyn to be released from the distillery’s own barrels, specially formulated to create a rich, smooth whisky.
