Spirit NOTES

Bottle limited to 1 per member

Soft leather wrapped around toasted pine nuts, almonds and praline before teasing us with dried prunes, bruised apples and a silky layer of linseed oil. Then notes of coffee and molasses combined with dark chocolate on a bed of baked orange skin and walnuts. A dash of water brought a sensual synthesis of plums, pine nuts and salted caramel between silky sheets of cinnamon butter and fudge. Figs, prunes and hazelnuts suggested dry oloroso sherry with a rich complexity that balanced fine oak with oxidised orchard fruits. An everlasting finish wrapped us in nutmeg and allspice, tingling the tongue with cloves and ginger biscuits before falling back into soft leather and oak.
