Spirit NOTES

The nose presented a deconstructed pear belle Helene – ‘cold pear tart with Chantilly cream and dark chocolate squares’ – we also got caramel, vanilla, cherry pipe tobacco and fresh paint. The palate commenced with honeycomb sweetness, then gentle spice slowly built in the mouth – cinnamon buns, orange oil and chewing tobacco; eventually a liquorice dry finish. The reduced nose was a tale of two markets – cured hams in Mercado de San Miguel (Madrid) or a Christmas market, with mulled cider, dark chocolate, oranges, lemons and vanilla slices. The palate found vanilla cheesecake and gingerbread, finishing with treacle, oak and dry wood spices.
