That Try
Welsh Single Malt Whisky
70cl | 41%

That Try is the fourth bottling in Penderyn’s Icons of Wales series. Released in time for the Rugby World Cup 2015, it is a tribute to the greatest try ever scored (aka 'That Try'), scored by Gareth Edwards for the Barbarians against New Zealand on 27 January 1973 in Cardiff.

Matured initially in bourbon barrels, it was finished in quarter casks which used to hold peated Islay whisky, resulting in a sweet and smoky spirit.

Tasting Notes

Appearance Clean, brilliant honey amber.

Nose Mild aromas of peat smoke, early morning at the rocky seaside and warm marmalade-on-toast all compete for our attention.

Palate A very fresh and clean whisky, beautifully distilled, gives pleasure from the very first sip. It begins with great sweetness before the smoky, slightly medicinal flavours descend.

Finish Slight bitterness follows, that leaves a long and lingering fresh taste in the mouth.

Madeira Finish

The original release from Penderyn, matured in bourbon barrels and finished in Madeira casks. Crisp and sweet with notes of tropical fruit, raisins and vanilla.

Add to Basket


Fully matured in bourbon barrels, Myth is a light and easy-drinking style of whisky with notes of mixed fruit. Full-term maturation means this is the release that allows the distillery’s pure spirit to shine.

Add to Basket


The 41% version of the classic Madeira finish, this is delicate and sweet with notes of both fresh and dried fruit, and a long finish.
