Tasting Notes

"Very sweet with soft notes of raspberries and strawberry liqueur, as well as some melted butter, cassis and candy canes. More sweetness on the palate and pretty much a continuation of the nose. It's a bit too one-dimensional too warrant a higher score, but the Penderyn Rhiannon is a satisfying whisky nonetheless."
