Penderyn 13 year old Rich Oak Single-Cask Single Malt (D1062), 58.1%

Price: $150 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




Deep polished chestnut color with a nutty nose of dried apple, blueberry syrup, clove, and cinnamon; the high alcohol mingles with scents of walnut, hazelnut, and soy sauce. The deep berry flavors burst with black cherry, crème de cassis, chocolate, peppercorn, and an exceptional mint leaf note. Despite the strength, it's seductively irresistible and a whisky you'll return to time after time. (232 bottles)
