Distiller - Since selling their first product in 2004, the Penderyn Distillery has remained the most prominent distillery in wales. Their still is a custom-built copper pot that can reach a staggering 92% ABV on the first run; hence, why Penderyn is one of the few single distilled whiskies from the UK. This non-chill-filtered single malt is primarily aged in ex-bourbon casks and then finished in ex-Madeira wine casks. Along with the Celt and Myth, the Legend is part of the brand's "Welsh Dragon" range of 41% ABV expressions (versus their signature 46%).
This Welsh single malt is matured in bourbon barrels and finished in ex-Madeira casks before bottling, which provides layers of nut and dried fruit character along with a touch of vibrant sweetness.
