Penderyn Legend (B) Print

Penderyn MadeiraA permanent feature here at the Blue Bell inn Penderyn Welsh Whisky is the single malt whisky that defines Penderyn's 'house style' being distilled in their unique copper pot still, matured in bourbon barrels, finished in rich Madeira wine casks and bottled at premium strength. The whisky is smooth, light in character and softly golden in colour.

At premium strength (46% vol) Penderyn has an exceptionally balanced taste with an aroma of cream toffee and fleetingly of fresh new leather. Then, as the initial sensations fade, the finishing notes of tropical fruits, raisins and vanilla emerge strongly and are long lasting.

A fact perhaps not commonly known is that S A Brain brewed the mash to Penderyn's specification and send it up to the distillery for processing.

This whisky is non-chill filtered and has no added colouring making it a totally natural and true whisky.
