The Penderyn Peated in this bottle has been aged in ex-bourbon barrels and ex-peated Scotch whisky casks to bring out its appealing character.
At a generous 46% ABV, it introduces itself with sweet, aromatic smoke. Under this there are signature notes of vanilla, green apple and refreshing citrus. An array of gentle flavours tempts even the most sophisticated palate, while smoke and vanilla linger on the attractive medium length finish
On the nose it shows an excellent bouquet with a characteristic nutty character and delicious mature fruit with hints of orange peel, all exquisitely mellowed by careful ageing. Rich, softly sweet and smooth on the palate. Perfectly balanced, with a long and elegant finish.
Nose Intense tropical fruit aromas of passionfruit, pineapple, lemon and orange peel with a touch on cinnamon and ginger.
Palate Smooth and oily textured. Even at the full 46% it is soft and easy to drink. Flavours of fresh pineapple, lemon, oranges, marmalade and ginger snap with some honey and oak.
Finish Becomes more malty and biscuity with the oak flavours also shining through.
Colour Bright gold in colour.
