Following on from our Grand Slam editions of 2005, 2008 and 2012 (celebrating Wales winning the 6 Nations Rugby Grand Slam) we are delighted to launch a 2019 Grand Slam edition in association with the Welsh Rugby Union.
The whisky is a 46% Portwood finish and is a new whisky. It comes in the classic Penderyn bottle to match the rest of the series, and features a description of the final game against Ireland and signatures of the squad, Warren Gatland and the coaching team.
Carousel pic features ex-Welsh rugby captain, Sam Warburton, holding the bottle.
(This is a limited bottling which we will produce only for a certain amount of time before production stops later this year.)
Nose: Red grapes and cloves, prunes, vanilla and oak tannins mingle with red berries: strawberries, raspberries and a hint of cranberries
