Penderyn Rich Oak 46%
Penderyn // Wales
Released in fall 2018, Penderyn Rich Oak 46% is the latest addition to the Gold Range of this Welsh distillery. The Rich Oak joins the already available Madeira, Sherrywood, Portwood and Peated editions. Previously the Rich Oak has been limited in supply, but by making the transition to the flagship range, it now has a permanent presence. Please note: Rich Oak has previously only been available as a limited batch offering at 50% ABV, and as a Single Cask at 59.8% ABV.
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 TypeEx-bourbon & European ex-wine casks
"The nose is big on the vanilla (it’s a bomb), with caramel and fudge, and hints of freshly-cut grass and mango. Very modern and very much wood driven. The palate is fairly fruity. The mango certainly makes an encore, as does the fudge. There’s room for some cloves and nutmeg too. Also, there’s no escaping the vanilla, which also lingers for a little."
