Penderyn Legend, 41%

Price: $47 Issue: Spring 2015 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This edition was matured in bourbon but finished in Madeira casks, which lends it a honeyed, sweet nose of cream soda, lychee, whole almond, and dried tropical fruit. Smartly, the finishing cask gives a lift but never dominates. A fresh, clean taste, but the mouthfeel has a frailty, so although you will find lemon, icing sugar, candy bananas, and molten honey, this doesn't quite live up to its rousing name.£31
