.penderyn – madeira

Madeira finished

46% abv, single malt, non-chill filtered

Nose: sharp, glue, young, sweet, fruit, strawberries, pineapple, breakfast cereals, vanilla
Palate: strong, fat, sweet, thick, vanilla, honey, nuts, dark chocolate, mint
Finish: lingering, banana, sweet, marmalade, orange zest, slightly bitter.
Score: +++++

Conclusion: Not bad at all. She lingers for a long time giving you a slightly bitter, marmalade afterthought. If you like that in your whiskies, this is a good one.

More info: The whisky has matured on ex-Bourbon casks, to have received a finish on ex-Madeira vessels. Both maturation periods are unknown.
