The 4th edition of the Penderyn Icon of wales series that will see 50 different releases in total.
A peated version with mild aromas of peat smoke, early morning at a rocky seaside and warm marmalade on toast all compete for our attention. A very fresh and clean whisky with great sweetness before the smoky, slightly medicinal flavours descend.

As 2015 was Rugby World Cup year, the launch of the fourth in the series ‘Icons of Wales’ was called simply ‘That Try’.
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.
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.
