The affectionate relationship between Scorpions and their Swedish audience was bolstered with the addition of Gothenburg-based drummer Mikkey Dee a couple of years ago, and now the German-Swedish love affair has gone to the next level.
With the release of Scorpions Rock´n Roll Star Single Malt Whisky Cherry Cask, Scorpions commented: “Finally, we have our own Scorpions Whisky ready to be released…. we love it! This particular whisky gets to its perfect maturity in extraordinary German sweet cherry wine casks. We hope you all enjoy it… let‘s Rock the Night and Taste the Sting!!!”
Angela D’Orazio, master distiller at Mackmyra said: ”Lovely guys to work with! Klaus, Rudolf, Matthias, Mickey and Pawel were very nice and interested in the process. I think we managed to get a smooth whisky with a lovely aroma of fruity vanillas from the bourbon casks, soft buttery tones from the oloroso sherry casks as well as a sweeter touch from the cherry casks. The fact that we got a finish of both cherry and sherry gave the whisky a perfect balance.”
We wish this was available in the USA, ’cause we can’t tell if this sounds tasty or WTF? For now you have to order it in Sweden, here, for a mere 599 Swedish Krona ($66.75 USD), not including shipping.
