Happy Canada Day to all fellow Canadians today and I hope you have a good one!
I had a dram of Penderyn Portwood yesterday and decided to do a quick review of it.
The nose of this whisky obviously has a hint of port. There is a rush of raisins and dried dates. It pours a nice deep copper, which is very pleasant to the eye.
When tasting, you can definitely conclude that this was put in port casks. This whisky is begging to have a rich desert accompanying it. A nice chocolate cake and a dram of this would be wonderful in fall or winter.
On the other side, this whisky is light enough on the palate to be a delightful dram to have when the sun is setting on a perfect summer evening.
Although this is a good whisky, there is not much making it a great whisky. It's price point ($69.90 LCBO) make it one that should be more of an exploration of whisky than anything else.
