HEELS OVER HEAD
12th February 2011 - MANCHESTER UNITED V MANCHESTER CITY
It may have taken just a few seconds, but Wayne Rooney’s overhead kick in the 78th minute of the Manchester Derby will stay in minds for a lifetime. Following a sublime pass by Nani, Rooney leapt into action for a perfectly executed bicycle kick – and the crowd loved it. The ecstatic voices of 70,000 fans paired with a jubilant manager meant this moment was simply – as commentators so rightly claimed – out of this world.
A marvellous moment to be truly savoured, matched by a 12 year old whisky just as sublime. A blend of fine malt and grain whiskies with Strathisla single malt at the heart. Notes of luxurious honey, vanilla and ripe apples leave a rich and lingering taste. The creation of something extraordinary. A smooth taste worth celebrating.
