Description

Penderyn Sherrywood takes you on a flavor adventure that bridges the worlds of American bourbon and Spanish sherry. Imagine swirling the whisky in your glass and releasing a wave of enticing aromas. Deep, rich notes of dried fruit like raisins and prunes dominate at first, hinting at the sherry influence. But there’s more to the story. Hints of toffee, a touch of green apple freshness, and a surprising nuttiness like hazelnuts weave through, hinting at the time spent in ex-bourbon casks.

The first sip is a delightful surprise. The initial sweetness you might expect from the sherry takes a backseat, offering a refreshing dryness instead. The sherry whispers its presence with flavors of dried fruit and a subtle sweetness, but it’s balanced by the warming spices you’d find in a good baking cupboard – think cinnamon, nutmeg, and a touch of clove. Hints of toasted nuts, like almonds or walnuts, add another layer of complexity.

A subtle but intriguing note of chocolate emerges on the mid-palate, adding a touch of richness that complements the overall profile. As the flavors dance on your tongue, the influence of the oak barrels becomes apparent. A gentle tannic grip and a hint of vanilla emerge, showcasing the whisky’s maturity.

The finish is long and warming, lingering with those delicious notes of spice and dried fruit. The sweetness of the sherry peeks back in subtly, leaving a satisfying and well-rounded conclusion. Penderyn Sherrywood is a whisky that keeps things interesting, offering a journey through sweet, dry, spicy, and nutty flavors, all beautifully balanced and inviting another sip to explore its depths.
