Customer Rating
Penderyn is a Welsh whisky distilled once in a unique Faraday copper still with an added purifier and rectification column and finished in Madeira casks for extra smoothness. Launched in 2004, Penderyn has built on its early promise and really carved a niche for itself.

    Aroma: banana, rum raisins, toffee palate: young whisky hotness gives away to a mild sweetness. Medium body with notes of peach, raisins and vanilla. After about 10 minutes, a lovely wood shaving nose emerges from the glass. aftertaste: vanilla, slight bitterness, nutty dryness reminiscence of 2015 Compass Box Flaming Heart. I like this one without water.

    I bought a bottle of this a few years ago. It was disappointing; powerful, paint stripper stuff. I received a birthday bottle recently so I've given it another whirl with better results. Nose: lovely. Hot cross buns, fudge and then toast and a little dark fruit and chocolate. No burn or prickle on the nose so didn't add water this time. Palate: Gorgeous mouth feel, rich mouth coating. Full bodied, cereals, dried sultanas, prunes and something close to chocolate but not quite. That mouth coating turns waxy. Finish is long and very drying (makes you want more), with more of those prunes. Interesting and certainly different to Scotch. Recommended.

    Sweet intensely light fruity the most differant of all the whisky I've tried has a nice peppery malty burst arrival with a short intense Madeira finish almost as if the whisky Is light and has little character of its own worth trying at least once but too sweet for me

    A nose of fruitcake and vanilla, sweetness with the Madeira flavour cutting through as you let it rest on your palate. A great whisky that I have returned to after a few months without,l. A pleasure to drink and full of flavour..

    Wanted to like it, but the madeira overtones are just too much, comes together on my palate like a cocktail of the cheapest sherry and straight grain alcohol. Opinions may differ.

    Recommended by my dad's mate. He liked it so much he painted a line on the bottle to limit his generosity. Sweet smelling but don'tlet that influence your expectation as it is nowhere near as sweet on the palate. A real surprise and extra value gained as a talking point. Recommended.

    Way too sweet for me, with an oddly sweetener/caramel & fruity aftertaste that reminded me very strongly of Southern Comfort. Not popular with any of the eight of us who tried it.

    I bought the penderyn madeira whiskey with a open mind not exspecting the world however for such a young whiskey it can hold its own i beautiful flavours such as fudge and banana when you add water you get a lot more also this whiskey is non chill filtered and i believe there is no E150a added penderyn are making whiskey that is as good if not better than scotch.

    I''m a bourbon guy with a scotch problem... That said, this stuff crushes it. FYI that''s a good thing. Subtle; hint of sugar with a solid foundation.
