More than alright
a week after first opening and the cloying marzipan sweetness spoiling this dram has gone, leaving a deliciously sour and, dare I say it - rusty malt reminiscent of the excellent Kilchoman Machir Bay releases. Only downside to the changes in the developing bottle is that the nose is much less interesting.

Does the Welsh proud.
Like a less crap Connemara. Nose of honey, vanilla, marzipan, cake icing, toffee. Warm palate, sweet peat and a hint of chili. Could do with some saltiness or more medicinal character to balance it out. Nice long finish, not much develops though. Not bad, though I think peat fans will be disappointed. A good pre-dinner malt.

This is a beautifully balanced and refreshing single malt. It's peated but not in the usual sense in that the peat influence comes from the use of Laphroiag Quarter Casks for maturation as opposed to peated malt. They also use Buffalo Trace Bourbon casks the influence of which is also very obvious. This makes for a subtly complex single malt with cask influence from two of the very best whiskies. I've tried all the Penderyn range and this is the one that surprised me the most. I thought it'd be a pale imitation of the peated style but having tasted it alongside Ardbeg 10 and Lagavulin 16 it holds it's own whilst only having peat levels of 5ppm as opposed to the 50ppm that many Islays have. On the nose there's a grassy, summer fruits and vanilla peat smoke combo and on the palate a refreshing array of vanilla, green fruits and clear savoury edge and gloriously deft peat. the finish is sublime and not too hot or overpowering. Overall a fantastic single malt from the fledgling Welsh distillery.

if you're expecting something as intense as Laphraoig (whose barrels are used to finish this whisky) then you'll be disappointed. however, if you think Bowmore or Bunnahabhain crossed with an Irish single malt then you'll love Penderyn Peated.

A friend brought back a bottle from Wales for me. I love a peaty whisky, and the subtle tease of peat was delightful and in had a nice warm finish. I look forward to trying this whisky in about five years when it crosses the 10yo barrier.
