We were delighted to discover that Penderyn Celt made the Top 20 Whiskies of 2018 in Whisky Advocate magazine. Whisky Advocate is America’s foremost spirits magazine and their buying guide experts rate and review hundreds of current releases each year. So this is a great achievement for a whisky that only arrived in the US for the first time earlier this year, thanks to our new importing partners, Impex Bev.
Penderyn Celt is a single malt whisky finished in ex-peated quarter casks, bottled at 41% abv, and 43% in the US. It recently won the following Gold awards: 2018 Spirits Selection by Concours Mondial, 2018 World Whisky Masters Europe Premium, and 2016 World Whisky Masters Europe Premium.
Nose: Mild aromas of peat smoke, early morning at the rocky seaside and warm marmalade on toast all compete for our attention.
Palate: It begins with great sweetness before the smoky, slightly medicinal flavours descend.
Finish: Slight bitterness follows that leaves a long and lingering freshness in the mouth.
