Spirit NOTES

We all enjoyed this gentle nose, which ranged from carnations and cherry blossom fragrance to fruit salad chews, melon, green grapes and candied plums, with pale hints of cotton and blackboard chalk. Fruit dominated the palate – Juicy Fruit gum, apple peelings, orange zest, brambles and strawberry jam; then blue lady tea (with flower petals), sherbet and mild spice to finish. The reduced nose gave us perfumed incense smoke and charred wood, bergamot, sage and honey. The palate still delivered fruit (including medjool dates) but now with greater complexity – tea and oak, gentle smoke, mace and menthol, brown sugar and syrup.
