Penderyn | Madeira | ? Years Old | 46 % | bourbon casks and then finished in Madeira casks | NCF & NCA
Nose: Marzipan, tropical fruits, citrus fruits, strong hay note, quite wine-y, vanilla
Taste: Neutral entry, butter, malt, peaches, apricots, oranges, a bit spirity but quite sweet
Finish: Fruity ,vanilla, oaky, salt, butter at the end, quite long for the abv
Conclusion: I have to say that it took some time to acclimate myself with the dram, but I enjoyed it better at the second session. Overall, it’s not really my type of malt. I can’t really put my finger onto what it is that makes me not really liking this one but I don’t see myself finishing the mini I have. Maybe it’s the fruitiness?
