Penderyn 6 year old Rye Single Cask 685/2016, 60.7%

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

A sweet, floral, and spicy nose with aromas of shortbread, lemon sorbet, vanilla sponge, poached pear, cinnamon, nutmeg, green banana, ground ginger, and dried apple. Lime, lemon, vanilla sweetness, butterscotch, candy corn, pepper, and ginger root flavors, with the spices riding high on the cask strength alcohol, falling back to toasted nuts, peanut brittle, rye spices, griddled brioche, and oak. Try a little water to make it even spicier. (219, bottles, U.S. exclusive)
