All about making whisky
PENDERYN Thel Celt 41%
Single Malt Whisky, Wales / Southern Wales, 70cl, Ref: 822
Until the mid-palate, this charmingly Celtic Penderyn offers us dominating peat to contemplate and enjoy. But with a wonderful intelligence, it then extends its power by revealing a more altruistic side. And then, letting us know its work here is done, it leaves the room, never to return. Until, of course, the next sip, when, as if by magic, it reappears
Profile: fresh, original nose. Peaty. A firm palate in which spices (cinnamon, grated ginger) precede red fruits (raspberry, strawberry).

- Appearance : pale gold
- Nose : original, fresh. Despite giving the impression it was never there, the peat has a strong influence on the aromatic palette. It is nonetheless happy to leave the talking to chocolate, aquatic (water lily, reeds) and fruity (pineapple, Golden Delicious apple) notes. It then becomes more oily and earthy, and smoke makes its first appearance. Altogether it is harmonious and full of life
- Palate : firm, lively. Just like the nose, the palate reveals an oily peat, notes of tobacco and fresh fruit. The mid-palate is spicy (cinnamon, grated ginger) with hints of rubber, before red fruits (raspberry, strawberry) invade. At this point the peat becomes much more discreet.
- Overall : long, smooth. With remarkable freshness, the finish is characterised by notes of melon and watermelon. It is lactic and clearly evokes the tumult of the fermentation process. The retro-nasal olfaction expresses a gentle chocolatey, creamy character. This Penderyn is remarkably concentrated, from the nose to the finish. The empty glass unmistakably echoes the initial nose.
- The brand
Produced using a single copper pot still with a special column above the still that removes any undesirable elements, the Penderyn distillate is collected at 92%, a purity that plays an important role during maturation. The result is a whisky with a subtle mix of tradition and modernity. Penderyn’s single malts are predominately matured in casks that have previously contained Evan Williams bourbon, a nod to the ancient family of Welsh distillers that founded one of the first American distilleries. Penderyn is also lucky enough to benefit from the services of Jim Swan, an extremely famous distiller and a genuine expert in the art of maturation.
Penderyn est un mélange subtil de tradition et de modernité, il se chuchote qu’il serait même le « uisgy » le plus doux au monde. En distillant pour la première fois en 2000, cette distillerie construite à proximité du Parc National de Brecon Beacons, renouait avec l’ancienne tradition du whisky gallois. Fait unique dans l’industrie du whisky : la distillerie possède une paire d’alambics Faraday, du nom de leur créateur. Cet alambic en cuivre à repasse est surmonté d’une colonne de distillation lui permettant de récolter un distillat des plus purs, à 92%. Distillerie innovante, Penderyn est également reconnue pour le vieillissement exceptionnel de ses malts, au sein d’anciens fûts de vin de madère. Une distillerie qui place la qualité des produits au centre de ses préoccupations en s’offrant depuis son ouverture les services du célèbre master distiller Jim Swan.
