Spirit of Freedom
62 % der Schottinnen und Schotten wollten in der EU bleiben. Für J. & A. Mitchell (Eigentümer der Springbank, der Glengyle und von Cadenhead) Anlass den aktuellen Spirit of Freedom aus Whiskys von 62 verschieden Schottischen Destillerien zu mischen.
In the UK’s EU membership referendum of June 23rd 2016, the people of Scotland voted by 62%-38% to stay in the EU. However, due to England and Wales voting to leave in much larger numbers, Scotland now faces being taken out of the EU against the will of her people.
This whisky, the latest in a series of Spirit of Freedom bottlings, contains whisky from 62 different distilleries in recognition of the Scottish ballot.
Nose: A lovely introduction to this whisky; sweet and fresh with a minty background. It then becomes really fruity with apricots, bananas and pears.
Palate: A light and easy-drinking dram.The fruity theme continues with melon and raspberries, combined with vanilla cream; a Scottish malty panna cotta.
Finish: You’ll want to share it with your pals or then again, maybe better to keep it to yourself, it’s very moreish and buttery.
