Penderyn 12 Year Old Port Wood Single Cask Welsh Whiskey 750ml
Penderyn 12 Year Old Port Wood Single Cask Welsh Whiskey
This Penderyn 12 Year single malt was named “European Single Cask Whisky of the Year” by Jim Murray. He awarded it 96.5 points, placing Penderyn Port Wood amongst the best whiskies in the world in his Whisky Bible. There are just 251 bottles of this, at impressive cask strength (the highest proof the distillery has produced). Each bottle comes in a handcrafted oak box, and the bottles are signed personally by the master distiller, Dr. Jim Swan.
After a number of excellent single Port cask releases (and a 41% release), here’s a single malt from the Welsh distillery’s core range which is initially matured in ex-bourbon casks and then in Portwood casks following that!
Now at a higher strength of 46%, Penderyn Portwood was matured initially in bourbon casks before being finished in port barrels. the result is a creamy and rich whisky with notes of honey and spice.
A rich ruby-red tint prepares us for the delicious taste to come. The nose is as rich as the red color suggests, presenting aromas of red berry fruits, boiled sweets, dark chocolate, and hints of stewed plums. In the mouth, Penderyn 12 Year Port Wood Finish is delightfully sweet yet dry at the same time. Boiled sweets give way to dark chocolate in the mid-palate. The finish is long, leaving mixed fruits, dark chocolate, and vanilla.
Fruity with chocolatey touches. Sweet, jammy, and creamy with some toffee and wood spice.
Rounded and warming with more sweet, rich fruit and plum wine.
Sweet goji berries and caramel.
