What's in a name? Penderyn Bourbon Cask B227 whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Wales. Were it from America it would be spelled Penderyn Bourbon Cask B227 whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Vanilla and soft spices. Fiery oak, a little dried fruit, toffee apple and cracked black pepper.
Palate: Butterscotch and digestive biscuits. Creamy caramel, custard apples and allspice.
Finish: Spiced finish.
I'll be direct: this is GREAT stuff. But $450 (US)? I bought a sample bottle and was blown away. Then I looked up the price. Oof!! For about $100 less you can get Benromach 30 or Bunnahabhain 25. They are equally impressive. Of course, they're also different. No question this is rare stuff. I guess you gotta figure out if it fits your budget!
