Insider knowledge: Penderyn Single Malt 1l whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Wales. If distilled in America the spelling would be Penderyn Single Malt 1l whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Sweet, medium body. Herbal, vanilla, sweetness, resin, sultanas, toast. Over-ripe grape.
Palate: Thick and sweet, spices, green, biscuity. Custard.
Finish: Fresh, crisp, spices and stem ginger.
An aftertaste reminiscent of a 6 month aged Raki. Over sweet and disappointing for malt at this price point. Looking at other reviews of Penderyn Malts, I wonder if there is a flaw in their quality control - I really cannot believe that fellow enthusiasts would give such glowing reviews of the rubbish in my bottle.

I have a broad taste in whiskies and had high hopes for Penderyn. But sadly it disappoints. Perhaps when is left to mature to a 12 year old it might be worth a second chance. Till then my current bottle is just decoration on the shelf. Non of my whisky drinking friends (even the Welsh ones!) have taken to it.....sorry Penderyn, better luck next time.

There isn't a whisky on the market to compare it to its unique it's special in taste and texture I wouldn't drink anything else I have been drink it since it first came on the market and haven't stopped drinking it since after all. These years of drinking what I would now call inferior whiskys thanks to penderyn I have now found what I would call welsh gold
