Sukhinder's been raving about this Penderyn, which has been matured in bourbon wood before finishing in ex-Madeira casks. Bottled at a slightly lower strength than the standard Penderyn Madeira Wood for even easier drinkability.
My first try of this expression was today, and i was very impressed, nice nose of vanilla, and smooth to taste with an afterthought of oak, very nice indeed.

If anyone visits the distillery I'd also suggest trying the Portwood 41.

I was told that this expression of Penderyn was only sold at the distillery and in France. Good to see the the Whisky Exchange is on the button as ever!

Whisky exchange needs more of this soon. Exquisite nose and mouth feel to it. Lighter than the 46 and more graceful with it.

the best in the range by far, very peachy and well rounded sweetness leading onto a very smooth and soothing satisfaction on the back of the throat.

The Penderyn 41 is one of the best malts i have ever tried. I just came back from the distillery with some more and say that it is far better than the 46 versions and as good as the best Highland ones that i have been drinking for years. Try it and you wont turn back as the flavours are superb.

Quite simply one of the best non-peaty whiskies you can buy. Wales had a long history of whisky making which died out due to the temperance movement in the 1800s, but is now back with this award winning product. They also do a peaty variety and a sherrywood variety, but the original is my favourite and truly holds its own with the very very best. Buy it, try it, and you won't be disappointed.
