Penderyn Portwood 46% is a premium single malt from The Welsh Whisky Company and is especially popular in the French market.
The whisky is matured in American oak ex-bourbon casks and then 'finished' in Port casks to impart a generous flavour of subtle complexity.
The unique distillation and maturation produces a rich and cream single malt whisky.
OFFICIAL TASTING NOTES
Nose: Aromas of rich dried fruits with dark chocolate and cranberries; a hint of toasty oak mingles with a baked nutty dryness.
Palate: A creamy richness with some honey and spiced notes emerging.
Finish: Smooth with a soft oak and honey sweetness that lingers.
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.
