Penderyn Sherrywood

Penderyn Sherrywood is matured in ex-bourbon barrels and ex-Oloroso Sherry casks - a change from their classic expression, which is finished in Madeira casks.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Heaps of fresh apples and pears! Sweet candy floss, creamy vanilla, oak and prunes.

Palate Barley sugar sweets, Ryvita crackers and sherried sultanas, hints of peach and creamy malt throughout.

Finish Peppery dry, creamy butter fudge and yet more pepper prickle on the finish!

Reviews for Penderyn Sherrywood Finish
I toured Penderyn a few years ago and it's been one of my favourite whiskey since. This sherrywood finish is excellent.

Absolutely grim
Light apple juice in colour,the first thing you pick up on the nose is a cloying honey and shortbread cream sweetness, it's absolutely overpowering. Along with this there's that typical sherry dried fruit. Like the Madiera cask, the sweetness almost smells artificial, like there's something 'off' about it.

On the taste, the dominant thing is spice. Cinnamon, ginger and some white pepper batter your tongue. Once that subsides, that horrible cloying sweetness returns.

The finish is very tanin, overstewed tea, and a woody oak.

Not for me this one, afraid my sample ended up down the sink.

Love it
I personally Love the Penderyn range of whiskeys and even though this is not my favourite from them (Madeira) the sherrywood is a hugely close second. Even though some of the comments here don’t do it justice or even try to put you off, I would advise people to try it.

Love it!
Wow, this is really unique. It's really sweet, tastes like cotton candy with a little spice and sparkling/fizzy sourness is the best I can describe this. Cotton candy mixed with sour fizz on steroids. Unique, lots of flavour, smooth, long finish and I love it.

Not for me.
Not really for me. Plenty better on the market that's for sure. Lacked flavour, lacked depth, finish. Not enough going on for me

Love it
I absolutely love this Sherry Wood Penderyn Whisky. Its soft and rounded, lovely flavour and a cracking finish. What I love the most is that its not too fiery. Too moreish for words.

Somewhat underwhelming
Somewhat underwhelming, the nose promises great things but unfortunately this whisky offers very little flavour on the tongue. The finish has the usual fiery Penderyn quality.

A favorite
I import this to US regularly. Wish there was more available. This bottle helps me in the snowy winter with a sweet fruity finish but good whiskey notes.

I had a tipple of this whisky, and by far it's now one of my favourites. It's so smooth, sweet smelling and you do get the slight taste of Sherry.
This whisky rolls off the tongue in terms of flavour. It's all provided in steps rather than all at once.
One to drink on it's own with chilled whisky stones.
