The Penderyn Icons of Wales Edition #9 whisky is named The Headliner, in honor of David Lloyd George, the only Welsh Prime Minister, and a social reformer. The whisky has an ABV of 46% and is matured in Jamaican Rum & Ruby Port Casks. Lloyd George is also credited with accidentally establishing the premium whisky industry. This bottle is a celebration of his contributions and impact on Welsh history and culture.
The whisky has aromas of red berries, strawberries, and cream, with hints of cranberries, light oak, and vanilla. Nutmeg and cinnamon spice add complexity to the nose.
The palate is rich and sweet, with flavors of dried fruits, salted caramel, and floral honey. The whisky has a spicy kick of black pepper, with a tannin dryness that adds structure to the flavor profile.
The sweetness fades into a dry-yet-fruity finish, making this a complex and satisfying whisky to enjoy.
