Penderyn Distillery is delighted to announce the issue of a special bottling of Penderyn Single Malt Welsh Whisky to mark Wales' 2012 Grand Slam success in the RBS Six Nations Championship, their third such success since 2005.
The spring bottling of our Gold Award winning single malt whisky will be dedicated as the Grand Slam Edition 2012 and presented in a special commemorative package - a stylish celebration of what we believe to be Wales' best season yet.
The commemorative package contains the signatures of the Welsh Coach, Warren Gatland and the Welsh team. It also features the tournament league table and gives the highlights of the crucial last game, the Grand Slam decider against France.
This is the third Grand Slam Edition that Penderyn has had the privilege of releasing in the last eight years.
This Grand Slam edition will be a must for every supporter of Welsh Rugby.
Dr Jim Swan's Tasting Notes
The original Penderyn in this bottle has been aged in ex-bourbon barrels and finished in ex-Madeira wine casks to bring out its full golden character. At a generous 46% ABV, it has a classic freshness with aromas of cream toffee, rich fruit and raisins. The palate is crisp and finely rounded, with the sweetness to balance an appetising dryness. Notes of tropical fruit, raisins and vanilla persist in the finish.
