Penderyn 10 year old Ruby Port Single Cask (PT-178), 60.06%
Price: $150 ● Issue: Summer 2021 ● Reviewer: Jonny McCormick
A good single cask pick should stand up proudly at cask strength yet still show plenty of character after dilution: This aged Welsh whisky does both superbly. Aromas of stewed rhubarb, cherry syrup, five spice, fresh oak, ripening black currants, and ground ginger. It opens with sweet flavors of lemon shortbread, vanilla, cherry gummy bears, and raspberry, building to a climax of clove, cinnamon bark, and tannic fruit skins. Don't miss!
