Penderyn Icons of Wales #8 Hiraeth is a single malt Welsh whisky produced by the Penderyn Distillery in Wales. It is the eighth release in the Icons of Wales series, which celebrates Welsh history and culture through its whisky. Hiraeth is a Welsh word that refers to a feeling of nostalgia and longing for one's homeland.
This whisky is matured in a combination of bourbon and dry oloroso sherry casks, which gives it a complex flavor profile. On the nose, Hiraeth has aromas of honey, toffee, vanilla, and a hint of smoke. On the palate, it is smooth and creamy with notes of dried fruit, spice, and a subtle smokiness. The finish is long and warming with a gentle sweetness.
Hiraeth is a limited edition whisky with only 4,500 bottles produced. It is bottled at 46% ABV and is non-chill filtered, which means that it retains more of its natural flavor and character. It is an excellent choice for whisky lovers who enjoy a rich and flavorful whisky with a touch of Welsh history and culture.
