Penderyn Madeira Single Malt Whisky (Wales, UK):Tasting Notes
The Penderyn distillery is located in the old village of Penderyn within the foothills of the
The alcohol by volume (ABV) is 46%. No age statement provided.
Color: A very bright gold. It fools you somewhat because after resting in Madeira casks for a bit, you would think the color would be much, much darker. When you swirl the whisky in your glass, it leaves noticeable legs, that cling for but a short time.
Nose: It is milder than the 46% ABV would imply. The aromas include: sweet mild oaky, lots of fruit with hints of cinnamon.
First taste: BAM! You immediately get hit with some heat. Heat you never expected. There is a fruitiness there that tells your taste buds to enjoy.
Finish: Fairly long lasting. Firm but so smooth, tapering to a mild dryness. The warmth continues as does the sensations of the first tasting.
