Penderyn “Peated” (12/2009 release), 46%

Price: $70.00 Issue: Winter 2010 Reviewer: John Hansell

My feelings here are the same as for the Sherrywood: it comes across as younger and less mature than the original Madeira wood finish version. This one has some peat smoke in the mix. Malty sweet (with some graham cracker, nougat, and hints of butterscotch), peppered with light smoke. Quick, lightly smoky finish.
