Whisky

We are pleased to be able to stock the entire range of liquors produced by the award-winning Penderyn Distillery, including:

The Dragon Range – Celt, Myth and Legend

 

Penderyn Celt


Celt is a single malt whisky finished in ex-peated quarter casks, bottled at 41% abv.
TASTING NOTES:
Nose: Mild aromas of peat smoke, early morning at the rocky seaside and warm marmalade on toast all compete for our attention.
Palate: It begins with great sweetness before the smoky, slightly medicinal flavours descend.
Finish: Slight bitterness follows that leaves a long and lingering freshness in the mouth.

Penderyn Myth


Myth is a single malt whisky matured in a range of specially selected ex-red wine and ex-bourbon casks, bottled at 41% abv.
TASTING NOTES:
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.

Penderyn Legend


Legend is a Madeira-finish single malt whisky, bottled at 41% abv. (43% in the USA)
TASTING NOTES:
Nose: Aromas of fresh apples and citrus fruits intermingle with cream fudge and sultana raisins to create a complex yet fresh, clean and well-balanced whisky.
Palate: Incredibly smooth and both fresh and rich dried fruits abound. Delicate and sweet on the palate with just a hint of bitterness to remain refreshing.
Finish: A long aftertaste of Madeira cake and sultanas.

ICONS OF WALES

 

‘Special bottlings, each one celebrating a person, milestone or event from Welsh history with international significance.’

To date there have been five Icons, with a sixth set to launch later this year.

 

#1 Red Flag

A Madeira finish whisky at 41% abv.

Red Flag is the first edition in the ′Icons of Wales′ series. It commemorates the first time a red flag was raised as a symbol of social protest. This happened during the 1831 Merthyr Rising, which ended in the execution of miner Dic Penderyn, aka Richard Lewis.
TASTING NOTES:
Nose: Aromas of fresh apples and citrus fruits intermingle with creamy fudge and sultana raisins in the nose to create a complex yet fresh, clean and well-balanced whisky.
Palate: This single malt whisky is incredibly smooth and both fresh and rich dried fruits abound. Delicate and sweet on the palate with just a hint of bitterness.
Finish: A refreshing malt, it slowly presents a long finish leaving an aftertaste of Madeira cake and sultanas.

 

 

#2 Independence


A Madeira finish whisky at 41% abv.
The second ‘Icon of Wales’ is called Independence and commemorates the signing of the American Declaration of Independence in 1776. The emerging statesman Thomas Jefferson, who went on to become one of America’s most famous presidents, was one of the fifty-six men who adopted the Declaration of Independence. Wales is a small country yet Jefferson and fifteen of his fellow signatories had Welsh roots.

#3 Dylan Thomas


A sherrywood-finish whisky at 41% abv.
The third in the ‘Icons of Wales’ series; a new Single Malt, released in 2014 to celebrate the centenary of the birth of the famed Welsh writer, poet and broadcaster Dylan Thomas. This officially licensed edition celebrates Dylan’s life and works and features original photography, illustrations and quotations that capture Dylan at his most creative.
TASTING NOTES:
Nose: It begins with the aroma of sugar bonbons, rich with the smell of creamy toffee and vanilla. Soon Penderyn’s own fresh green apples and boiled berry fruits join in.
Palate: Cream sherry flavours, obvious but not overt, mingle with delicate fruits reminiscent of white currants and honeydew melon.
Finish: An aperitif whisky with a medium-long finish that ends up with an attractive aftertaste of mixed fruits. Dinner beckons!

#4 That Try


A peated finish whisky at 41% abv.
That Try recounts the highlight of the match that took place on the 27th of January 1973 in a packed Cardiff Arms Park, when the Baa-Baas scored what is regarded as the greatest try ever seen.
The edition, which features a specially commissioned drawing of Gareth Edwards on the black bottle and comes in a handsome black and white box to match the famous Baa-baas kit, is a Peated Single Malt Whisky at 41% abv.
TASTING NOTES:
Nose: Mild aromas of peat smoke, early morning at the rocky seaside and warm marmalade on toast all compete for our attention. A very fresh and clean whisky, beautifully distilled, which gives pleasure from the very first sip.
Palate: It begins with great sweetness before the smoky, slightly medicinal flavours descend.
Finish: Slight bitterness follows, which leaves a long and lingering fresh taste in the mouth.

#5 Bryn Terfel


A bourbon cask whisky at 41% abv. The latest in our series was launched on the 29th of November 2016 and celebrates Welsh opera singer Bryn Terfel and, more specifically, his favourite role, Falstaff. The whisky is well-rounded, spicy and sumptuous and we have brought a theatrical element to the design, all of which reflects the character of Falstaff.
TASTING NOTES:
Nose: Smooth and creamy. There are notes of honey, vanilla ice-cream and a hint of banana chips.
Palate: The experience is well rounded and rich, full of fruits, sweet apples, vanilla and a tone conjuring up nostalgic memories for a banana split.
Finish: Contains honey which is followed by another evocative tone – cream soda – along with the late arrival of a lingering woody spice.
