Penderyn Rich Oak Single Malt Welsh Whisky (700ml)
Originally created from three ex-bourbon single casks and rejuvenated casks selected by the late Jim Swan, it was so well received, subsequent bottlings followed. 'Rich Oak' now forms part of the distillery's 'Gold Range'.
Other reviews... As is the Penderyn way, this cleverly reveals the other side of the coin. Quietly intense and far less domineering, this is an easily overlooked gem of a whisky! 46% Alc./Vol. 95.5 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2021
Chocolate, rich berry fruit, honeydew, green grape, oat cookies, dark toffee, and oak spices on the nose. Flavors of chocolate flakes, Oreo, cinnamon, malt, and hazelnut, with a concentration of spices on the tip of the tongue, before a flavorsome finish of Hershey bars. It’s delicious and well-made, but occupies a very specific place on the flavor spectrum, so one to try before you buy. 89 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Jonny McCormick (Winter 2019)
