    Penderyn is a fairly young whisky-- the first distillation was 2001, with the first release taking place in 2004. So the oldest stocks are only 7 years old, to date.

    That being said, this spirit has a surprising amount of maturity for such a young whisky. A Welsh tavern in the area keeps it in their stock, so I generally try it every couple of weeks.

    The earlier bottles were a little sweeter, with the later bottles being a little drier and more oaky. Prominent tasting notes include bitter orange zest and a touch of butter toffee. Some of the later bottles have a slightly briny character, like a coastal highland scotch (Oban, Talisker, and Clynelish fit this description well). Madeira-finished whiskies always seem to possess a unique nose, I still don't quite know how to describe it...
