An array of gentle flavours…
Penderyn Peated Welsh Single Malt Whisky
Generally the Penderyn house style is medium to light if not delicate spirit, matured in Ex bourbon casks and then finished in a number fortified and wine casks. But this one is a little different. And they have now introduced a peated malt into the fold.
But the catch is, the peat comes from ex Islay casks. Once again, this keeps the delicate style in tact.
My rough notes read, “Gently smoky nose, tingling spirit, light malt and oak. On the palate, bright, crisp spirit, gentle bonfire smoke, dry, clean and crisp. All mid palate, but that drying smoke does hang around”.
From Connosr, “A very gentle arrival with a beautifully silky, airy mouthfeel. Lime zest, green mango, apple vinegar, apple cider, peat, and vanilla. Medium in length. Oak and peat are one here. Butterscotch, grain, big anise, butter, barley, limestone, green mango, lime zest, cedar wood, and vanilla. A damp. mossy pine forest? Sure, why not?”.
Official notes read, “An array of gentle flavours tempts even the most sophisticated palate. Smoke and vanilla linger on the attractive medium-length finish. Light smoke/citrus fruitiness”.
This malt is also Kosher.
