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.

Member Reviews and Ratings of Penderyn Rich Oak
Nice amber color but astringent nose and too much oak. Smooths out after awhile...
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.
Smooth and balanced, cinnamon and vanilla pair perfectly with the strong oak presence
Medium w/ strong kick; oak/nutty
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!
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.
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
Strong apple with oak and spicy finish. Curious flavor.
Oak nose. Lite. Short linger
Oaky, not very sweet - nice, but just not my favorite flavors
Oak and chocolate
Nice finish and holds its flavors throughout. Good whiskey.
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.
Taste great with a little ice
Good oak and spice flavor.
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!
Oak, toffee and fruit. Lovely finish to the first week of Advent 2020
Very drinkable. It is very much an evening drink; something to settle into in front of the fire.
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
Definitely oaky and sweet. More banana peel than fruit for me. Lasting vanilla notes and a cinnamon finish
Fruit forward with vanilla. Sweet finish.
Day 5 of Advent - A very nice dram. Notes of apples and bananas on the nose with a smooth vanilla palate.
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.
Very pleasant. Quite oaky on the nose, but the oaky flavor is balanced nicely with some sweet vanilla notes. Smooth finish. Enjoyable overall.
Day 5 we have a winner. Very sweet aroma. Hint of spice at first taste then it gets sweeter.
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.
Nicer than I was expecting.
Best yet in Advent Calendar. A smooth, rich taste with easy nose and subtle, nutty heat. Rwy’n ei argymell yn fawr.
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!
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.
The flavor spiral is pretty spot on. Lovely mouthfeel, with a lingering sweet finish with a hint of banana.
Nice ling finish.
Vanilla, dark chocolate hints, toffee- but still a bit of the oakey bite. I enjoyed it!
Nondescript and bland in my opinion
Floral, fruity and toasted nuts on the nose. Light with surprisingly bright fresh taste and creamy.
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
(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.
Advent #5. Fudge and vanilla dominate the nose. Nice apple pie and oak notes. Enjoyable but I wouldn’t buy at $80
Decent hints of toffee and vanilla but overall a little weak for a single malt
Deliciously smooth; and dare I say; delicate flavor profile.
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.
I loved the sweetness mixed with the raisin finish. Very different than what I am used to drinking.
