Penderyn 6 year old Ex-Moscatel de Setubal Single Cask (W19), 60.8%

Price: $120 Issue: Spring 2022 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Plenty of complexity, with marmalade, vanilla, and dried apricot on the nose, plus an undercurrent of curry spices, red chiles, and black pepper. That baked orange note shines through on the palate, with vanilla sponge, marmalade, and brown sugar, until black pepper begins to dominate, leaving thick, velvety melted chocolate in its wake, then a short dry finish. You can fast-forward to the chocolate part by adding water. (268 bottles)
