Spirit NOTES

The nose kicked off with grass and sweet hay, biscuit notes and Crunchie bars, then roasted hazelnuts, cinder toffee and espresso dregs appeared, giving depth. From the wings came pine-wood shavings and candied orange and lemon slices. The initial taste encounter seemed feisty and fizzy (lemon zest, bitter marmalade, stewed rhubarb) before sweetness and wood waltzed serenely together on our palates – lollipop sticks, custard in wooden bowls and chewing twigs dipped in honey. The reduced nose combined lemon Turkish delight and orange blossom with toasted oak and toasted coconut. On the palate, toffee bonbons preceded chewed pencil-ends, nutmeg, ginger and wasabi.
