A Madeira finish whisky at 41% abv and the second in the ‘Icon of Wales’ series is called Independence and commemorates the signing of the American Declaration of Independence in 1776.
The emerging statesman Thomas Jefferson, who went on to become one of America’s most famous presidents, was one of the fifty-six men who adopted the Declaration of Independence. Wales is a small country yet Jefferson and fifteen of his fellow signatories had Welsh roots.
Nose: Aromas of fresh apples and citrus fruits intermingle with creamy fudge and sultana raisins in the nose to create a complex yet fresh, clean and well-balanced whisky.
Palate: This single malt whisky is incredibly smooth and both fresh and rich dried fruits abound. Delicate and sweet with just a hint of bitterness to remain refreshing.
Finish: The whisky slowly presents a long finish leaving an aftertaste of Madeira cake and sultanas.
