This particular Penderyn limited edition, which is bottled at 46%, is distinct in the single malt world. It’s aged in ex-bourbon barrels as well as ex-peated-Scotch casks, the latter of which imbues it with its smoky character. No peated malts are used in production.

Tasting Notes

"Round, juicy plum and apple notes muscle through the ash and wispy smoke, which are relegated to the background on the nose. There’s a lot of brawn behind the fruity brightness. A kinda surprising cinnamon spiciness pushes the fruit to the side on the palate. The water amplifies the spice and washes away the fruit, leaving a musty storage-room floor in its wake--in the best possible way. The cinnamon—with all the intensity of a fireball candy –lingers with a slow burn on the finish. A bold and dynamic dram, one that will definitely have people talking about the UK’s least talked about country. "
