Penderyn Portwood 41, 41%

Price: $56.00 Issue: Spring 2013 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

A distillery-only bottling last year, and I'm delighted it's now more widely available. Penderyn is as brash about portwood as the Aussies, and this has a rich, creamy, and sweet liqueur-like taste, with blackcurrant to the fore. It's a delight. Penderyn is bottled in batches, so this is a different version from last year's, but it's close. I called it fruit compote in a glass. £36
