Let's cut the chase. There is enough written a bout he distillery, history, location so I won't cover all of that again.

Lovely looking bottle, well package. The bottling details are stamped on the shoulder so easy to find.

Nose is rich, caramel, sticky dark fruits, butter and vanilla.

The palate gives cereal, honey, fruity dates and figs. Well rounded and fairly big. It gives a good full mouth feel and and a medium finish which is extremely pleasant.

Good work Penderyn.

A bit more info from my first brief review. The more I try this the more I like it. Penderyn is bottled at 46% and really is very well made. They use Buffalo Trace casks initially and then finish in Madeira casks. These are from DS Cooperage and are initially filled with red wine, then filled with Madeira wine for 3- 6 months. Even though this is a NAS the distillery say it is stored for 4-6 years. Honestly, you wouldn't know and if it said 10yr on the bottle you wouldn't disbelieve them.
