Penderyn Distillery, Penderyn, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Wales

The Welsh distillery Penderyn, which has been operating for almost 15 years, produces a whiskey of the same name, the first Welsh whiskey to see the light for more than a century ...

They have their special refinements themselves, in this case here the port cask.

It's a distillery to which the famous Jim Murray a cult almost as grandiose as Ardbeg. And yet when you take a glass of Penderyn, you can only be in flagrant disagreement.

As Perceval, the great knight of Wales, put it so well:

So, to summarize, I am often a victim of hummingbirds, the types that are always forgotten. Uh, no ... In short, all that to say, that I would like to be considered as Tel.

Pink orange as expected from its finish.

Nose:
Barley does not lie and is shown from the start, mixed with a funny caramelized sugar and a lot of juicy red fruits.

Taste:
A mellow bottom of new make weaves the backstory, aided by raspberries, blackberries, spices and oak.

Finish:
We descend in beauty on the flavors and aromas expressed previously.

Balance:
Its finish brings him only qualities, and it is the final that benefits the most. Unfortunately it is the basic spirit that is lacking. Still the best Penderyn I have drunk to date.

Note: ★★★★★

A novelty for some time and exclusively in SAQ Signature, here is the newest NAS of the Welsh distillery Penderyn, the Legend.

Penderyn is the only distillery currently operating in Wales. It was founded in 2000 in the village of the same name. When Penderyn's sales started in 2004, it was more than a century ago that a Welsh whiskey had not seen the light of day.

The legendary Jim Murray never stops praising their traffic jams, and when you've tasted it, you do not understand it.

What makes me think of these words of the great Perceval, famous knight of Wales:

In life, I had two enemies: vocabulary and spinach. Now I have the secret boot and I no longer eat spinach. Thank you, goodbye, goodbye ladies-ladies.

Translucent to scare.

Nose:
Peach candies, oak wood, sweet waffle, tiny wave of molasses, young whiskey.

Taste:
Molasses, apple, peach or nectarine. Alcohol and spices are at the rendezvous. little metallic aftertaste.

Finish:
Very watery, she leaves very quickly and leaves behind only bad memories.

Balance:
Not extra, we are already better than Aur Cymru, but I would never buy a personal bottle. As for its legendary side, we will iron.
