Spirit NOTES

We were all bowled over by the lovely, fresh, sweet, intense, yet delicate fruity scent which reminded us of fruit-flavoured candies called, aptly, Skittles as well as lime and orange flavoured Tic-Tacs. Excellent texture with flavours of Earl Grey flavoured petit-beurre biscuits, mango and pineapple sorbet with a lime flower ginseng tea and toasted hazelnut chocolate paste. Be extra careful with water as we all agreed the aroma lost a bit of intensity and moved towards that of long grass on a summer’s day, hay and dried flowers while the taste still with plenty of creamy tropical fruits as found in a Piña colada or in a Key lime pie.
