Penderyn welsh single malt whisky portwood finish
This article is very important and special to me. This is my article #100. From my point of view, this number marks my entrance into the field of the three-digit and more serious values. On the other hand, the political government to his first one hundred day of governance, as well as this my venture, is not very sure and is rather met with incomprehension or concerns of sonorous failure. The 100 days have turned out to be and the turning point in the Bonaparte’s second rule, finally ended with the defeat at Waterloo. But enough deviations from the whisky theme.
You get the idea of my presentation – this review is a kind of an „anniversary“ for the materials posted in the blog, with what I’ll also meet on the 31st of December. Not only that purely emotional value, this post continues the tradition I have established to try to submit to your attention interesting drinks from the big, worldwide whisky family. In this case, it comes to a Welsh whisky /the only one at the present moment/ – Penderyn single malt whisky portwood finish, which I found in bar Caldo.
Penderyn distillery is owned by the Welsh Whisky Company, founded in 2000. The distillery itself opened its doors on 1st March 2004 in the presence of His Royal Highness Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales / in love with Camila, but so and with Laphroaig/. The history says that the whisky has begun to produce in Wales centuries ago, but the industry was shut down in the late 19th century. Besides sherry casks, Penderyn also use bourbon barrels from Evan Williams, as well as from Jack Daniel’s. The range is still expanding, as except whisky finished in Port casks are also available and such with Madeira finish, as well as peated distillate.
Another interesting kind is the so called „Red flag“, dedicated to the Welsh around the world and the Welsh patriotic struggles. In fact, the company produces several more types of malt, as well as gin, vodka and liqueur.
My notes. I leave to you to judge the color from the picture.
Aroma – pleasant and sweetish. Raisins, brandy, blackcurrant and dark fruits, cake with dark fruits /fruit cake/, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, nutmeg, light maple syrup, cinnamon and woody smell. With the addition of a little more than a drop of water appeared the aroma of spices and the woody note increased. Taste – forest fruits /blackberries, blackcurrant and wild strawberries/, raisins, palpable sweetness and a dose of spiciness. The water brought more gifts in the form of sweetness, honey and fruits. Finish – warm, honey, brandy, even dark rum, a finish strongly influenced by the Port wine, chocolate and after the drops of water the sweetness increased.
In summary: delicious, non-chill filtered whisky /which is a plus for me/ with pleasant taste qualities. It would be perfectly suitable for a Christmas dessert.
