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.
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!
