Penderyn Rich Oak
Penderyn // Wales
This very limited edition (only 2248 bottles) from the Penderyn Distillery comes from the marriage of three ex-bourbon single casks selected by the late Jim Swan. Bottled and labeled by hand, this expression focuses on the influence of the wood in the whisky, with a smooth and flavorful profile. Penderyn, the only Welsh distillery, is known for its Faraday pot stills coupled to a distillation column. Note: Not available in the US.
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.
"The nose is full of fruits, such as bananas, green apples and exotic fruits, coupled with a super sweetness - brown sugar, caramel and toffee. Bourbon vanilla appears, the one you would infuse in a custard or a crême brulée. Speaking of crême brulée, the palate is full of it, along with candied fruits - apricots, apples and plums. The vanilla is heavy and creamy highlighting the best of the ex-bourbon casks. The finish is long, creamy and yummy. "
