Spirit NOTES

This bottle is limited to 1 per member

A fabulously rich nose – molasses, toffee apples and Halloween treacle scones; raisiny sherry wine, leather and polished oak conveyed pure opulence. Aromatic campfire wood-smoke arrived on the palate, with sweet sherry, brown sugar and Nutella; tannic twists of liquorice, ash, cinnamon and oak to finish. The reduced nose was a Spanish menu of Jamon Serrano, quince jelly, Manchego, Tostadas and sunflower seeds – cinder toffee for dessert. The palate – tobacco smoke, vanilla wafers, Eccles cakes and sticky dates – ‘lock me away with this and let the world fall apart’ said one dreamy-eyed panellist. After 21 years in bourbon wood, this was filled into an oloroso hogshead of Spanish oak.
