Football legend and sexy underwear/soft drink/sportsgear/shaver spokesmodel David Beckham has taken KL city by storm when he touched down the nation’s capital to launch his latest venture: Haig Club Single Grain Scotch whiskey.
The stylish star epitomizes what every dapper gentleman should dress like; decked out immaculately in a crisp suit and black leather loafers.
Held at The Majestic Kuala Lumpur yesterday. Beckham sat down for a short and sweet Q&AÂ session with selected Malaysian media before he made his way to Troika Sky Dining for an exclusive dinner with over 150 whisky enthusiasts hosted by none other than Malaysiaâ€™s very own Datoâ€™ Jimmy Choo.
Developed in partnership with David Beckham and Simon Fuller, the drink was produced by leading alcohol beverage conglomerate Diageo, which also owns Smirnoff vodka and Guinness.
However, Beckham insisted that he wasn’t only lending his perfect face for the brand. According to Hype.com, the former Real Madrid winger was involved,”…a 120 per cent,Â from the taste of the liquid to the creation of the bottle.â€
And the decanter could not reflect his personal style more. The cobalt blue bottle evokes masculine energy and luxury, some commented it looks more like a perfume bottle than of an alcoholic beverage’s.
So, how does this taste like?
As most of us in the Mynewshub office don’t drink, we’ve enlisted the help of Amazon.com to give us a hint of the drink’s flavours.
“Haig Club has an ultra-smooth taste, with delicious notes of butterscotch and toffee . This makes it enjoyable served neat, over ice or in a long refreshing cocktail. The subtle taste of Haig Club pairs very well with food, especially seafood. The liquid itself is a clear, golden amber colour.”
As for aroma,the site wrote: “A nose of vanilla fudge, honey and dried tropical fruits with mild pepper and light oak.” and tastes of, “A rich and creamy palate that mixes sweet flavours of brioche, coconut, vanilla and toffee.” Well,there you go.
But ifÂ you’re the adventurous kind or a true-blue fan of David Beckham, Haig Club is available at all good bars around Kuala Lumpur for the retail price of RM196.35 per bottle (excluding VAT).MYNEWSHUB
