Penderyn Madeira Finish

Penderyn Madeira Finish Bottling Note

Penderyn is a Welsh whisky distilled once in a unique Faraday copper still with an added purifier and rectification column and, after a spell in bourbon barrels, is finished in Madeira casks for extra smoothness. Launched in 2004, Penderyn has built on its early promise and really carved a niche for itself.

Tasting Notes

Nose:  Sweet, medium body. Herbal, vanilla, sweetness, resin, sultanas, toast. Over-ripe grape.

Palate: Thick and sweet, spices, green, biscuity. Custard.

Finish: Fresh, crisp, spices and stem ginger.

PRICE £39.43 70cl

Highland Park Dragon Legend

Highland Park Dragon Bottling Note

An altogether smokier-than-normal addition to the Highland Park range, Dragon Legend shows off their peaty elements cleanly and clearly, alongside sweeter hints from the sherry-cask-matured portion of the expression.

Tasting Notes

Nose:  Cut grass, roasted vanilla pod and a hint of mulled wine.

Palate: A robust core of heather-y, earthy smoke arrive straight away, with peppercorn, mince pie and oily malt in tow.

Finish: Notes of dried citrus and toasted barley linger, but the finish doesn't drag on too long (get it?).

The Glenlivet 15 Year Old French Oak Reserve

The Glenlivet 15 Bottling Note

This 15 year old expression from The Glenlivet, was matured in French Limousin Oak casks. Limousin Oak is a popular choice for maturation of Cognac.

Tasting Notes

Nose: The nose is rich and oaked. There are notes of chewy resinous wood with a well-balanced acidity. Fudge and Madeira with apple crumble with calvados. 

Palate: The palate is full and rich with winter spice; cinnamon and cloves, thick oak with developing aridity.

Finish: The finish is long and dry with a peppery note.
