ImpEx Collection (distilled at Penderyn) 5 year old Blandy's Malvasia Madeira Cask, 57.4%

Price: $140 Issue: Winter 2022 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This vibrant single cask whisky has an attractive nose of dried cherry, prune, currants, raisin, rosehip, furniture polish, and stewed apples. It’s a dry, sweet, full-bodied whisky, with apple syrup, strawberry, damson, caramel, and creamy toffee, the alcohol rising steadily to crest with pepper, bathing the taste buds with comforting waves of sweet fruits, red currant, and rose hip. A rather spectacular whisky. (486 bottles)
