I bought this ages ago, after seeing it on special offer online, after warming to the Penderyn Madeira Finish.
Maybe I’ll warm to this one with time, but it’s a bit of a disappointment, it doesn’t seem as complex as the box notes suggest.
At 41% it is surprisingly mellow, very smooth, very little burn, and tastes quite mild, a lot milder than the Madeira Finish from what I remember. This is another fruity one, but it’s more subtle, pear maybe, some vanilla.
It’s a bit bland, I won’t be buying it again. Out of curiosity I added a drop of water to it, and tried another with some lemonade, but it doesn’t have a strong enough flavour for a mixer, and so I’d imagine it would be pointless using it in a cocktail.
