Penderyn 7 year old Jamaican Rum Single Cask R8, 59.9%

Price: $130 Issue: Reviewer:

Distilled in Penderyn’s lantern still, this whisky spent nearly 5 years in the rum cask after starting life in a bourbon cask. Star fruit, beeswax polish, lime, papaya, mango peels, sunflowers, toasted wood spices, and hints of clove. Banana, papaya, caramel, pepper, vanilla, and a bit of orange peel, the spices soar across the tasting experience, concluding with marshmallow, nougat, and graham cracker, then sappy green fruit on the finish. (212 bottles; U.S. exclusive)
