Spirit NOTES

Sweet aromas of macaroons, burnt ginger biscuits and salted caramel merged with red liquorice, chocolate fudge cake and buttered toast, while light honey coated burnt heather. The flavours were bold and robust as applewood smoke washed over antiseptic-glazed lamb, roasted with rosemary and almonds, and served with kale fried in ghee, scorched limes and hot smoked mackerel. Adding water brought an earthier and more herbal demeanour with tarragon, rosemary and thyme on oysters, scallops and crab, accompanied by aniseed liqueur and cough syrup-cooked lamb shanks. Liquorice returned with pink peppercorns and burnt coconut husk before oak sawdust, chimney soot and dried herbs combined on the finish. Four years in an ex-bourbon hogshead before being transferred to a toasted ex-peated whisky hogshead that had previously been filled with whisky 66.124.
