Penderyn Myth, a Gold award winner in the Spirits Business World Whisky Masters 2017, Myth is a recent addition to the Penderyn range. It is a 41 %, whisky matured in a range of specially selected ex-red wine and ex-bourbon casks.
Penderyn Myth is beautifully presented in an elegant and classy slate grey presentation box, featuring an animated illustration of a red dragon, which is an all-important symbol from the Welsh national flag.
Nose: Fresh and lively, Myth has mixed citrus fruits mingling with apple, pear drops and the merest hint of tropical fruits.
Palate: Sweetness dominates then moves over to allow some refreshing bitterness to emerge while the mixed fruits continue to dominate the flavour.
Finish: Gradually all the flavours ebb away to leave memories of a lively and light style of whisky that is easy to drink.
What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Penderyn Myth
Quote 1 “The aroma of the Penderyn Myth is incredibly light and airy; hard to get much of anything out of it, but what’s there is average. The good side of average, but still it’s nothing exciting. The palate though is quite a bit richer and deeper. It carries an oiliness that’s surprising and a welcome balance to the light aroma.
If the aroma reflected the palate it would be an incredible whisky and I hope it’s something they can accomplish in future releases. The base malt of the Penderyn is really nice and I’d love to see them display it in a bolder richer way from start to finish.”
