Penderyn Celt Single Malt Welsh Whisky is a brand new addition to the Penderyn range. It is a 41% single malt whisky finished in pleated barrels. It joins recent bottlings of Legend & Myth in featuring a new animation of the traditional Welsh dragon on the branding. The Red Dragon is the flag of Wales, and the Royal Welsh badge bears the motto: ‘Y drag gosh dry cychwyn’ which translates as, ‘The red dragon inspires action.’ It features in ancient Welsh tales and was the battle standard of mythical Celtic kings. Welshman Henry Tudor took the flag to Bosworth where, in 1485, he became the last king of England to be crowned on the battlefield. Today the dragon is seen as representing all things Welsh and epitomises Penderyn Celt. 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 gives pleasure from the very first sip. In the mouth it begins with great sweetness before the smoky, slightly medicinal flavours descend. Slight bitterness follows that leaves a long and lingering fresh taste in the mouth.
