Spirit NOTES

The panel identified this as an unusually perfumed and delicately aromatic example of this great Islay make. Warming notes of muscle rub, salted nuts, herbal infusions and Nicoise salad dressing. Then aromas of cockles in brine and seafood spread. Reduction brought smoked limes, iodine, cloves, salted cod and an earthy aroma of hedgerows and undergrowth. The palate was initially hugely sweet. Then in time became more smokey with coal embers, smouldering fir wood, burnt marshmallows and blowtorched foam shrimp sweets. Oily, woody and powerful. Water gave the impression of sucking oysters from the shell with a dash of tabasco. Then eucalyptus, green apple, peppermint tea and wintergreen. Molten lava scattered with salted pistachios.
