European Single Malt - Premium - 2014
The World Whisky Masters 2014 (The Spirits Business)
Insider knowledge: Penderyn Madeira 41 whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Wales. If distilled in America the spelling would be Penderyn Madeira 41 whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Rich, caramel-like aromas, with notes of soft sweetness, orange peel, vanilla and crackling spices.
Palate: Light palate entry with hints of dried herbs and malt. A little Peach Melba.
Finish: Peaches, creamy.
I have tasted nothing like this before. Wonderful aromas, fiery like the Speyside malts but far fruitier. Very nice indeed.
