Product Description

"Do not go gently into the night, rage, rage against the dying of the light" And Mr Dylan Thomas who is honoured here should know a thing or two about that and was a legend when it came to drinking. So raise a glass of this Ex-Bourbon and dry Oloroso Sherry cask aged release and rage against the emptying of this easy drinking and creamy Welsh single malt.

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!
