Spirit NOTES

Bottle limited to 2 per member

Our excited and enthusiastic panellists were inspired by this to paint word pictures. The nose was ‘Dried cranberries on sticky Dundee cake, dunked in port and topped with shavings of nutmeg’. The palate suggested ‘Dried fruits, syrupy vanilla and a leather jacket whose previous owner used perfume and tobacco’. For the reduced nose, someone offered ‘Madeira cake and Armagnac-soaked prunes, resting on cedar wood in the sun’. The reduced palate elicited this, ‘A verbena sugar scrub followed by a snack of ripe figs drizzled with rich manuka honey’. Single malt from selected hogsheads, married in a bourbon barrel since 2018.
