The nose is miles away from the palate. Sad as I was expecting more\rcomplexity and subtlety.
Portwood Edition, Cask PT26
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Spirity at first. Earthy. Wet leaves. On time a heady floral note. Peony. A\rmusky rose fragrance. A very attractive floral bouquet.
Palate: Immediately woody and grippy. Praline and chocolate.
Finish: Dry and astringent.
Comment: The nose is miles away from the palate. Sad as I was expecting more\rcomplexity and subtlety.
Nose: Young but richly coloured and fruitladen. Clafouti, plum, redcurrant,\rstewed rhubarb. Good complexity with clean, fresh lemon behind.
Palate: Sweet and chewy with excellent texture and deep soft gentle fresh\rfruitiness.
Finish: Ripe and soft.
Comment: On this evidence, Penderyn is really finding its feet. Generous\rand compelling. Compare to the Tomintoul.
