That Try is our 4th 'Icons of Wales' Edition and recounts the highlights of the match that took place on 27th January 1973 in a packed Cardiff Arms Park, when the All Blacks’ wing Bryan Williams kicked a high ball into the Barbarians twenty-two, little did he think that less than thirty astonishing seconds later the Baa-Baas would score the greatest try ever seen.
The edition, which features a specially commissioned drawing of Gareth 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.
This memorable moment in sporting history has been recounted with the full approval, and by kind permission, of the Barbarian Football Club, whose famous colours and distinctive badge have been the hallmark for fair play and open rugby for the past 125 years. They have committed all royalty fees relating to this product to a charity of their choice.
That Try was awarded Silver at the Whiskies of the World Masters 2015 in the European Single Malt Super Premium category
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.
