No real complexity. Maybe longer in cask would have helped. Compare to\rthe Penderyn.
12 Years Old, Portwood
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Looks like a light rose wine and with a nose of flowers, cranberry and\rpomegranate it smells like one as well.
Palate: That red fruit quality it retained but its hot which at 46% suggests that the\roak hasn't helped to dampen down the alcohol.
Finish: Delicately fruity, but too ethereal
Comment: No real complexity. Maybe longer in cask would have helped. Compare to\rthe Penderyn.
Nose: Light but tangy. A floral note combined to summer fruit. Strawberry,\rredcurrant. Cream-soda.
Palate: Thick, almost syrupy. Very sweet. The same summer fruit notes as on the\rnose. Pomegranate juice.
Finish: Dry, medium long.
Comment: The colour indicates a wine finish. Port maybe. A perfect companion for a\rfruit dessert.
