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

    Beautiful buttered toast front with subtle honey raisin mid and dry finish with lingering fruitcake resin. Omg. So good

    I was given this as a 60th birthday present. I usually go for only Islay whiskies with an occasional forays into Speyside. So this came as a complete surprise. Light , subtle, full of summery flavours . A sweet but not overpoweringly so aftertaste that is nothing like the Southern Comfort alluded to by a previous reviewer. In a its slow reveal complexity it reminds me of standard Finlaggan without the peat . Bill Size's description is spot on. I have tried Celt since and that has its moments too.

    Has to be considered a worthy alternative to Scotch. I thoroughly enjoyed the first taste I had. Very surprised. I will definitely keep one of these in my collection.

    Just had a dram. Not my kind of whisky. Very strong on the nose. Tastes of a sort chemical personally speaking.

    I comes in an elegant bottle with two external ribs in the moulding - Cool !! But what is the whisky itself like ? Well, not like any of the Scottish malts I normally drink, but very nice indeed. Pale in colour and brain-damagingly strong, (46 % ABV), I give it five. I take it neat in small quantities, of course. If you want to take more just have a point of lager alongside to cool it off !

    For me, this is one of my favourites. Personally I don't taste notes of banana, rum, raisins and toffee like Bill Sze does. Nor do I taste paint stripper like Chris Child did. But I'm no expert. I just taste a very fine,relatively young whisky with a strong madeira finish The madeira finish is especially present in the aftertaste. This works for me ;-) But in the end, it all comes down to personal taste. If you can, try before you buy. It's always worth to visit some Whisky tastings in your area.

    A friend of mine had some Penderyn gifted to him and shared a glass with me. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I usually head for peaty whiskys such as Talisker 10 year old, but this was very nice, (no water or ice added). I will be buying a bottle.

    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.
