Penderyn Madeira Finish Reviews

An array of tastes

I'm writing this after my first half bottle of penderyn as I wanted to taste it properly before giving my opinion. After reading reviews saying that this whisky was basically paint stripper, I approached it with a degree of trepidation, which I thankfully found to be misplaced. This whisky is smooth and the tastes present themselves one after the other well, even when drank neat, leaving an aftertaste of vanilla and coconut. The alcohol is not overwhelming, but if you do add some spring water, it becomes even smoother and doesn't lose any of the flavours. I like to combine my whisky with dark chocolate, about 85%, as I believe that the whisky is enhanced as the burn of the alcohol is lessened. This whisky combines well with a chocolate and/or spring water, but I can easily drink it neat.

My favourite whiskies are Jura and Bowmore, and now Penderyn and I look forward to discovering more penderyn whiskies. Compared to those two whiskies, this penderyn is smoother and less intense in flavour as it doesn't have that peatyness to it. For those who gave this award winning whisky a bad review, I can only believe that they are a whisky snob, who won't accept somewhere like Wales as a whisky maker, but, each to their own. Iechyd da!

An array of tastes

I'm writing this after my first half of a bottle of penderyn. After reading some reviews saying it was basically paint stripper, I had a slight feeling of trepidation, but this was misplaced. I wanted to drink at least half of the bottle before giving my opinion. The whisky is smooth and delicate even when neat, with a wide array of flavours which reveal themselves one after another with an aftertaste of vanilla or coconut. When you add spring water it is smoother still, which is not so necessary in my opinion, as the flavours remain the same. I do like to combine my whisky with dark, 85% chocolate as the taste compliments well, but this is a whisky I can easily enjoy on its own. My usual favourites are a Jura or a Bowmore, and compared to these, Penderyn Madeira Finish is much smoother but with a less intense taste. Each to their own, and enjoy

Artificially sweet

Light hay in appearance, there's a strong nose on this one. It's extremely grassy and herbal with a bready, yeasty note. It is very odd, and frankly a little off putting. Underneath that strong herbal tone is a slight sweetness, like barley sugar sweet, not toffee sweet.
In the mouth it's over sweet, almost chemically sweet, there's some ginger heat, it's a little custardy but not in a nice way. It tastes like really cheap sugar free custard, the sort you only buy by accident once.
The finish is thankfully short, it just leaves a slightly bitter ginger taste, along with that artificial sweetness. Absolutely horrible stuff.

Will be offering to guests to try and not buying another bottle when done.

Not for fans of traditional single malts. The sweetness takes over and is borderline artificial, other comments that suggest a cheapness almost chemical tone to the smell and taste are not to far off the mark.

Light and crisp

Spicy and light, quite fresh nice evening tipple and a change from Scottish/Irish brands.

Sweet, smooth, perfect.

This has become a staple item for my bar cart. It's light, smooth, and goes down well. Notes of rum raisin and perfect for a post-dinner sipping.

Simply excellent

Light, crisp, slightly sweet and with a hint of vanilla.
A thoroughly enjoyable, unpretentious drink that's become an instant household regular

Good whisky. Sweet and medicinal.

Smooth and easy drinking. I got a very sweet scent on the nose, and quite a medicinal, herbal palette. The finish was short, but flavourful. Worth a drink, and definitely worth the price.

Truly Disgusting

I'm struggling to believe that the positive reviews on here are real. I purchased a bottle last night and almost gagged on it. Having loved countless Single Malts over the years, this is the first bottle that I have ever had to relegate to a "only to be drunk mixed with Coke" category.

Delicious

Picked a bottle up on offer and it exceeded expectations.
Vanilla custard slice notes with a strong kick.
Sweet and lasting on the palate.
Will be buying this one again!
