European Single Malt - Premium - 2014
The World Whisky Masters 2014 (The Spirits Business)
What's in a name? Penderyn Madeira 41 whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Wales. Were it from America it would be spelled Penderyn Madeira 41 whiskey, rather than 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.
