Penderyn Welsh Whisky, Distillery Bottled
JIM MURRAY'S WHISKY BIBLE - 89 POINTS - 'A sharp freshness from the Madeira casks is very apparent; there is a boiled sweet fruitiness also while the malt is ethereal; big malt weight defies the nose, clean yet pleasantly cluttered; the fruit returns here for a surprisingly chunky contest with thick malt; exceptional balance and charisma for a whisky so young.'
- Alcohol: 46%
- Other info: Penderyn is a Welsh whisky, the first commercially available whisky made in Wales since the 19th century. Produced by Penderyn Distillery (formally known as the Welsh Whisky Company), Penderyn is a premium strength (46%) single malt whisky produced in several varieties. It is distilled in the village of Penderyn in the Cynon Valley, Rhondda Cynon Taf from which the brand takes its name. The company was launched in 2000 as the Welsh Whisky Company. Whisky had been distilled in Wales for hundreds of years, but the industry died out in 1894. Penderyn became the first whisky to be manufactured in Wales for over a century when sales started in 2004, and it remains the only whisky currently produced in the country. Penderyn Distillery is situated in Brecon Beacons National Park and is considered the smallest distillery in the world. The company obtains its wash from Brains Brewery.
