Back Spirit NOTES

Spirit NOTES

The nose evokes old wood – grandparents’ dresser, roast chestnuts, creosoted sheds or the mischief-filled forest of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. There’s also lots of dried fruits – Dundee cake, sticky dates, dried figs, golden sultanas – the sweetness of agave syrup and moist Madeira cake, pipe tobacco and armagnac. The taste is ambrosia and nectar combined – intense earthy sweetness of eucalyptus honey, dark brown sugar, treacle and chocolate-coated nuts – then tobacco leaf, polished leather and a finish of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove. Water adds orange liqueur, sandalwood and ice-wine grapes to the nose and sherbet lemon, hibiscus and fine old Muscat to the palate.
