Penderyn 10 year old Madeira Cask-Finished Single Cask Single Malt (No. 047-3), 58.1%

Price: $110 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

When you feel you've earned a treat, pour a dram of this bottled candy. The nose is a tropical fruit basket, with papaya, guava, mango, jackfruit, and dried kiwi; extra goodies come in the form of Jordan almonds and vanilla sandwich cookies. Consistent tropical flavors on the silky palate. Nuttiness, gentle spice, milk chocolate, and coffee bean emerge with water. Intensely satisfying on the finish, with persistent fruit, integrated oak, almonds, and grapefruit peel. (243 bottles; U.S. exclusive)
