Top reviews for Penderyn Rich Oak:

— Day 5 and I had to look this one up. The earthy oak hits up front with a smooth fruity finish that keeps you wanting more. Definitely adding this to the collection soon.

— I'm really liking this one. I got mostly apple on the nose, but clearly a very fresh and fruity scent. It's ultra smooth all the way through with lots of vanilla. I'm not usually one for oak, but it's really nice here. I did get a little hint of banana on the tail and it honestly weirded me out a little, but more as a novelty than a determent.

— Day 5 of Advent - A very nice dram. Notes of apples and bananas on the nose with a smooth vanilla palate.

Very fruity
 
Maryjo
Maryjo,
Nice amber color but astringent nose and too much oak. Smooths out after awhile...

Nathan,
Advent #5. Vanilla on the nose. Vanilla and toffee then the cinnamon and apple. Occasionally a hint of banana towards the end. Really good, but I think there are others almost as good or just as good at a much lower price point.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Smooth and balanced, cinnamon and vanilla pair perfectly with the strong oak presence

Not much on the Northern European circuit. Too much oak and nut and after taste.

Surprisingly good. The oak flavor is balanced and stands up well as a smooth drink. Mild alcohol flavor.

Quite Nice, smooth start, spicy finish!

Kimberly,
2020 Advent calendar day 5. Strong apple. Not as much of a burn as the others so far. Also had less of a smoky taste. Was able to drink without much issue.

Great forward and after taste, surprisingly smooth, best sipped neat.
 
Jason
Jason,
Smooth, good sipper.

Without water it doesn’t do much. With water I get the key flavors on the wheel.

Good single malt. Earthy flavor and a good bite

Oak and chocolate

Nice finish and holds its flavors throughout. Good whiskey.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
I like it. Getting sweet tropical fruits on the nose. Not quite (or not just) banana; maybe guava? Unsurprisingly a lot of oak presence, along with untoasted nuts and developed sugars (since toffee was mentioned I'll go with that). I don't feel much of a recognizable wine influence from the reconditioned barrels, but it has a good amount of character regardless.
 
Mark
Mark,
Taste great with a little ice

Good oak and spice flavor.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
My favorite so far from the Advent calendar. Sweet, oaky, simple. Light burn on the finish, but mellow throughout. Excited to try the Madeira finish next!
 
Kent
Kent,
Oak, toffee and fruit. Lovely finish to the first week of Advent 2020
 
Louise
Louise,
Very drinkable. It is very much an evening drink; something to settle into in front of the fire.
 
James
James,
2020 Advent day 5 The oak is hard to miss. Oak dryness shines through in the mouth, turning into a toasty vanilla spice. Not bad, but too much dry oak for me and a bit more burn than I like
 
Dustin
Dustin,
Definitely oaky and sweet. More banana peel than fruit for me. Lasting vanilla notes and a cinnamon finish
 
Mike
Mike,
Fruit forward with vanilla. Sweet finish.

Jason
Jason,
Very pleasant. Quite oaky on the nose, but the oaky flavor is balanced nicely with some sweet vanilla notes. Smooth finish. Enjoyable overall.
 
Bob
Bob,
Day 5 we have a winner. Very sweet aroma. Hint of spice at first taste then it gets sweeter.
 
Derek
Derek,
Very pleasantly oaky with noticeable tones of vanilla and a hint of toffee on both the nose and the palate. Nice lingering finish. Surprisingly smooth for 46% abv. Definitely a solid sample from the Advent calendar, though I’m not quite sure about the value for the price.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Nicer than I was expecting.
 
James
James,
Best yet in Advent Calendar. A smooth, rich taste with easy nose and subtle, nutty heat. Rwy’n ei argymell yn fawr.
 
Julie
Julie,
The oak and sweet vanilla definitely dominate up front, but not so much that the other more nuanced flavors get missed. Quite a zing through the middle that fades into a slightly fruity & almost herby/vegetal finish. Really nice!
 
Todd
Todd,
I really like this one! Really...I grew up on the central coast of California (the “other” wine country), and love oak on Chardonnay and beef cooked on grill with red coastal oak bark. I’m buying a bottle of this.

Advent number 5. I enjoy whiskeys aged in other barrels, and this is not exception. Smooth.
 
Adam

The flavor spiral is pretty spot on. Lovely mouthfeel, with a lingering sweet finish with a hint of banana.
 
Michele

Nice ling finish.
 
Michelle

Vanilla, dark chocolate hints, toffee- but still a bit of the oakey bite. I enjoyed it!
 
Jesse
Jesse,
Nondescript and bland in my opinion
 
Kris
Kris,
Floral, fruity and toasted nuts on the nose. Light with surprisingly bright fresh taste and creamy.
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
Strong balance - nothing too sweet on the palate which was nice. More of a dark coco and nut. But finish had some good mild sweetness to it. Good full dram
 
Frank
Frank,
(Advent 2020, #5) Some chocolate and vanilla in the nose. Tasting it you certainly get lots of oak, with some caramel & vanilla. The medium finish continues with the vanilla.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Advent #5. Fudge and vanilla dominate the nose. Nice apple pie and oak notes. Enjoyable but I wouldn’t buy at $80
 
Bryan
Bryan,
Decent hints of toffee and vanilla but overall a little weak for a single malt

Deliciously smooth; and dare I say; delicate flavor profile.
 
Terry
Terry,
Advent 2020 #5 nice. I finished this one. Nice sipper neat and on the rocks. Vanilla and toffee come through for me.

(Advent 2020 #5) Little sweet with a an oaky and warmth. Decent all around.

Smooth with excellent flavor!
