Penderyn Legend Bottling Note

Penderyn Legend is a Welsh single malt whisky firstly matured in bourbon barrels and finished in ex-Madeira casks before it's bottled, imparting an intriguing touch of vibrant sweetness. It has been bottled at 41% ABV, slightly lower than the Welsh distillers' other Madeira-cask-finished single malt.

Reviews for Penderyn Legend
Buy again!
I really liked it! It was very smooth and drinkable. I added a small amount of water which bought out some more flavours. Would definitely recommend it, particularly if you can get it on offer

Positive Surprise
Excellent cost benefit (£19 at duty free) round, smooth and warm. Have had more expensive ones that were worse, but no cheaper ones that were better. Proper single malt, probably cheaper only because it's welsh

A solid 8
Love this , it’s sweet and doesn’t have an over powering kick of heat, not peated and almost toffee like after taste.It’s up there with the best. When this is on offer a bargain between £20-£24 but an average at full price.

well worth trying
Poor and low rating reviews can only be from those who haven't experienced the taste of many malts,for a welsh malt this particular one tick's all the boxes, I have never tasted anything else like it,smooth full of flavour and simply unique

definitely worth trying.
I just can't believe some of the bad reviews I have read on here. I live in Scotland and I have tried many malts,so yes initially when I came across this welsh malt I expected the worst ! I was completely wrong,this malt is just so smooth and full of flavour it's unbelievable,it is by far one of the best malts i have had the pleasure of tasting from outside of Scotland.

Quite Nice
I bought this because I was curious and it was on offer. It didn't blow me away but it has definitely grown on me. I would buy again .. when on offer ... an easy drinker ..

Very good for £23
It needs a dribble of water to loosen up the flavours and take away some of the initial harshness but after that it's sweet, light and chrisp. I'm not sure I'd be happy if I paid £30 for it but it's often on sale and worth a punt if you find it on offer.

Full of flavour, excellent for the price.
I'm a particular fan of Madeira cask finishes, perhaps the best I've had was the Balvenie 17 Year Old release from 2009, this doesn't quite compare with that but it does come close to the later 21 Year Old bottling from Balvenie at less than 1/4 of the price at time of writing.

The nose is full of fruits and sweet spices but the first hit on the palate is very light - I can understand the other reviews calling it bland. However, this is just the initial impact and I find it quite refreshing for such a fruit heavy whisky not to bowl you over right away, the flavour developes brilliantly as it moves across the tongue with a sweet citrus morphing into apples and almost a hint of cinnamon. Finally it leaves you with the warm sultana finish characteristic of madeira cask whiskies.

For its price it is an excellent whisky, almost a 4.5 but to earn that I'll need to be convinced of the consistency with a second bottle.

Fiery and bland
Not great. Very strong on the throat even with a drop of water. The taste after that lingers is nice but the initial hit is hot, fiery and bland. Not for me I'm afraid.
