I also sampled this at the Penderyn Distillery. An extraordinary whisky. Not the traditional 'peatiness' of a Scotch, because, as the previous reviewer notes, the barley isn't peated, it's the finishing cask which delivers the flavour. The smoke is hardly discernible on the nose or in the taste, but it crops up - as if by magic - in the after-taste. Like all Penderyn whiskies, it's a cryptic crossword, one to mull over.

I sampled this at the Penderyn distillery, while it's good whisky, I was more interested that this isn't peated in the traditional sense, (ie. by using peated barley) but is aged in barrels formerly containing another heavily peated whisky.
