      Surprisingly complex. On the one hand caramel and fruity sweet, on the other hand also smoky and spicy. Vanilla, cinnamon, allspice and white pepper wrestle with caramel as well as dried cranberries, currants and pomegranate seeds for the upper hand. Little by little, warm oak, ginger, warm Danish pastries, canned peaches and hints of new rubber boots follow. Really very nicely put together. With water: malty, nutty, yogurt with berry compote and gentle smoke.

      Quite easy, but surprisingly complex. Starts with gentle peat smoke, nuts, oak, jute, malt and pepper. Over time we get a little unbalanced and oak-toned, with the weak alcohol content fueling the whole imbalance. With water; juicy berry aromas, light smoke and a mineral spice. Then something falls apart.

      It's a shame, the smell was really hopeful and fun, but its wings were probably clipped too much due to the rather low alcohol content to be able to wrest the taste imbalance here.

      Long, smoky, chocolate and pithy oak flavor.

    The 6th bottling in the "Icons of Wales" series was launched on the 1st March 2019, and commemorates the original Welsh Whisky distillery at Frongoch, near Bala, which closed over 100 years ago.

    It has a Peated Portwood finish and is bottled at 43% ABV.

    Please note that, as with the original Welsh Whisky bottle, this edition does not have a presentation box.

    Nose lively, fresh, a little ether. White peach and a hint of peat.
    On the palate, we find this evanescent touch super fluid very fruity
    Final a little short cons

    Nose and Finale 3/5
    Mouth 4/5
