Day 226 Drink: Penderyn Peated Single Malt Welsh Whisky
Penderyn Distillery is the only distillery operating in Wales. The company started production in 2000, marking the first time a Welsh whisky had been produced legally since 1894. The distillery is located in the village of Penderyn inside the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Penderyn Peated Single Malt Welsh Whisky pours a nice light golden color. There is a sweetness to the nose that is backed up with engaging smoke aromas. The 90 proof whisky is lively with bits of pear, citrus and the peated smoke base. Fairly smooth and relaxing for a complex single malt.
