Back Spirit NOTES

Spirit NOTES

The panel were taken aback by the maturity of this one. A rich fabric of sour pineapple sweets, hubba hubba tropical gum, mentholated wax, fir liqueur, herbal resins, spiced tomato chutney and camphor. With water the nose offered up stone fruits such as peach and nectarine, along with polished green apples, lemon and poppy seed cake, sweet flapjack, vanilla syrup and pink lemonade. The arrival in the mouth was textural and zingy. Notes of fruity pink peppercorn, almond milk, cider apple, gooseberry tart, cut grass, lime zest, citrus pith and orange travel sweets. After dilution we found malted milk biscuits, soda bread, ovaltine, baking soda, scone mix with sultanas, lemon jelly, pineapple sweeties and green strawberries. A whiff of custard and fragrant Turkish delight in the aftertaste.
