Over the past 13 years Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible has established itself as the world’s leading whisky guide.
Whilst the whole Penderyn range is featured, the Distillery & Visitor Centre, based at the foothills of the Brecon Beacons, was particularly pleased with the review of their Limited Edition Port Wood Single Cask PT72 in the latest edition.
As well as receiving a mark of 96.5% Jim Murray wrote:
‘A delivery to make the faint of heart swoon... it has now been carved in stone as one of the world’s great whiskies; it’s unveiling each year one of the stratospheric moments in the world whisky calendar. And yet again it lives up to it ridiculously high reputation. If I find a better single cask than this for the 2016 Bible, it will be of the proportions of a Cecil B DeMille epic.’
Penderyn produced 200 bottles of this edition, but at time of writing only 80 remain.
Penderyn Port Wood Single Cask PT72 is available from their online store at a price of £295 (inc P&P).
