Sorry was being a little cheeky. Penderyn is probably quite nice, just not too my taste. It's like art, you can appreciate, understand why people like it, but would prefer to have dead kittens on your walls than some of it.
I think it was 2006 when I tried to get to Compass Box stand, and ended up getting distracted by the Welsh. Took the best part of a packet of oat cakes to reset my palate. Didn't notice the Juniper notes, but there was just something in the long finish that lasted a little too long.
I also have a pathological hatred of any whisky served from triangular shaped bottles.
