Penderyn Peated Reviews
Producer's NoteThe Penderyn Peated in this bottle has been aged in ex-bourbon barrels and ex-peated Scotch whisky casks to bring out its appealing character. At a generous 46% ABV, it introduces itself with sweet, aromatic smoke. Under this there are signature notes of vanilla, green apple and refreshing citrus. An array of gentle flavours tempts even the most sophisticated palate, while smoke and vanilla linger on the attractive medium length finish.

I was trying a few whiskeys in whiskey bar and spotted this welsh one open. They didn't have normal one open. By far the worst of the evening. Couldn't finish it. It went down the sink. Hope the normal one is better.
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.
