The first Wysgi in over a 100 years!

Penderyn is the first Welsh distillery in over a century. It was launched on March 1, 2004, in the presence of HRH Prince Charles himself. The distillery is situated in Penderyn, a small village located in Brecon Beacons, a mountain range in South Wales. Bacon Beacons is known for being home to Forest Fawr Geopark, which surrounds Penderyn, and was recognised by UNESCO to exhibit "geological heritage of great significance”. Penderyn produce merely 1 barrel of Wysgi (Welsh for Whisky) using their single copper still per day. All of their malts are matured first in hand-selected Bourbon barrels, and then further matured in special Madeira barriques. In the decade since the founding Penderyn has won critical acclaim from various competitions and people in the spirits business, and have built a following of thirsty Whisky-heads looking for that X-factor in Whisky.
 
Penderyn Madeira Finish acts as the flagship and core expression of the Penderyn distillery. It’s producing using a pot still created by Dr. David Faraday, descendent of the ground-breaking Victorian scientist, Michael Faraday. The spirit is aged in ex-Bourbon casks from the Buffalo Trace distillery, followed by a six-month finishing maturation in Madeira wine casks. This final maturation is crucial for the Whisky to have a round, multi-layered, and nuanced flavour profile. Penderyn Madeira finish was the Winner of the Best World Whisky, Gold Medal at the 2012 & 2013 International Whisky Competition, and many other accolades.

Smells like pineapples/tropical fruit. Tastes tangy and fruity, a bit overwhelmingly. Couldn’t taste much beyond it. Short to medium finish

Alexander
Alexander,
This was surprisingly good for being so subtle. It almost has a Gin quality to it on the nose and initial taste, but then goes light and sweet with some tropical fruit notes. Nice subtle burn on the finish.
