PENDERYN DYLAN THOMAS
Penderyn 'Dylan Thomas' Sherrywood is the 3rd in the Welsh Whisky Company's 'Icons of Wales' series. This limited edition bottling celebrates the lift and works of the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas.
The whisky is matured in American oak ex-bourbon casks and then 'finished' in dry Oloroso sherry casks to impart a generous flavour of subtle complexity.
The unique distillation and maturation produces a single malt whisky in which the Penderyn style is enhanced by rich tones of dry Oloroso Sherry.
OFFICIAL TASTING NOTES

ABOUT THE DISTILLERY
Penderyn Distillery is the only distillery in Wales and one of the smallest distilleries in the World, with a visitor centre that has been open since 2008.
It is one of only a few independent distilleries and takes its name from the old Welsh village in which it is located and nestles in the foothills of the ancient Brecon Beacons mountain range, which is recognised by UNESCO.
The water used in distilling and blending comes from Penderyns own water source and a single copper still is used for it's malted barley spirit. Initial maturation is in ex-Bourbon barrels with re-casking in ex-Madeira or a range of finishes in Oloroso Sherry, Vintage Port and the occasional old Islay Whisky barrel.
Each day, just one cask of malted barley spirit is produced; most of the spirit goes for ageing in Penderyns Cellars. Penderyn Whisky is distilled, matured and bottled at the distillery.
