Penderyn Rich Oak Welsh Whiskey
Penderyn Rich Oak very limited edition (only 2248 bottles) from the Penderyn Distillery comes from the marriage of three ex-bourbon single casks selected by the late Jim Swan. Bottled and labeled by hand, this expression focuses on the influence of the wood in the whisky, with a smooth and flavorful profile. Penderyn, the only Welsh distillery, is known for its Faraday pot stills coupled to a distillation column. Note: Not available in the US.
A permanent addition to the beloved Welsh distillery’s line-up, released in recognition of the popularity of its small-batch Rich Oak bottlings, this is a sweet, rich and fruity single malt. Aged in ex-bourbon casks and then finished in a selection of European ex-wine casks, this has notes of dark chocolate fudge, pepper, mango, green apple and vanilla.
With lots of vanilla, fruit (think green apple and banana) and burst sugar notes, this is a rather generous single malt Welsh whisky from Penderyn. It was drawn from three specially selected casks from the distillery, chosen by Master Distiller Dr. Jim Swan. The Penderyn Rich Oak is presented at 50% ABV, though it can withstand a couple drops of water.
Penderyn Rich Oak is the first ever release from Penderyn to come from their very own barrels, specifically from three casks which were carefully chosen by Master Distiller Dr Jim Swan. At 50% it is not to be taken lightly, but whether you prefer it neat or with a dash of water to take the edge off the creamy caramel notes are a treat for the tongue.
Dark chocolate fudge with cinnamon and pepper spices, followed by lush fruit green apples, mango, banana and guavas.
Rich and complex. A creamy texture with hints of vanilla, oak and cinnamon, and a hint of nutty toffee.
A creamy-vanilla flavour which is in no rush to ebb away.
