Penderyn Icons of Wales #7 Rhiannon
Penderyn // Wales
Rhiannon is the 7th chapter in Penderyn's Icons of Wales Series. Finished in sherry wood, the whisky is named after Rhiannon — an enchantress and horse goddess who could 'outrun any pursuer even whilst riding slowly’. Rhiannon in Welsh means ‘Great Queen’ or ‘Divine Queen'.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask TypeSherrywood Grand Cru Finish
"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."
