Penderyn 12 year old Ex-Ruby Port Single Cask (PT136), 60.38%

Price: $160 Issue: Fall 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This one comes out fighting, with notes of pepper, red chiles, leather boots, cherry stone, church candles, and black currant on the nose. At full strength, it's wild and untamed, with flavors of Cherryade, strawberry syrup, cough syrup, gingersnaps, and an uppercut of pepper and clove. Quenched with water, it's much less combative, and while on its best behavior, it delivers fruity milk chocolate and coffee notes. (U.S. exclusive; 258 bottles)
