This Penderyn whisky has been finished in Madeira casks, and it shows. Sweet fruity notes in the smell comes immediately. Marzipan, dark chocolate and light oak. Unfortunately, it is a bit weak in the smell.
The weakness is not in the taste though. Nice sweet classic Penderyn. I think some of the Penderyns are a bit short in the finish, but this stays for quite a while with the fruity Madeira sweetness.
This is probably the most complete Penderyn I have tasted. If it just were a bit more flavorful on the nose, I would have said that it is strong from start to finish. I will rate this 87/100 (21/22/22/22).
