Whisky Reviews for Spirit of Unity Uniting Spirit for Japan
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.00 points
- some meatiness, slightly peaty, fatty and minerally like a cambeltowner, grass, lots of apples. On the taste the Islay profile is more prominent
- Created by a group of independent distilleries. They joined forces and worked with designers waiving usual fees, so £40.94 from every single bottle sold could be donated straight to Refugees International Japan to help the country rebuild after the earthquake and Tsunami in March 2011.

- Nose: Peat, mineralic (very Springbank), peat sweetness - delicate, vanilla, peat, bit smoke, thick and oily, rubber, fermenting rice?Mouth: erica, peat, a bit raw green vegetablesFinish: warming and quite long, tad oak, vanilla, peat sweetness (very reminiscent of Laphroaig 10yo), tad alcoholic at the very end.Comments: Surprisingly peaty and very springbanky if I may say so also a bit rough around the edges. BUT I like it! A lot of flavors to discover. Adding water makes it a bit rounder.
- Wonderfully full bodied and rich, but not a model of refinement. A powerful dram for its 46% strength.
Masses of malt and barley sugars, orange, vanilla, a hint of coconut and a blast of a smokey kiln.
Sugary oatcakes and orange barley sugars with marmalade, pepper and peat smoke.
Richly sweet and spicy with more lingering smoke.
