Spirit NOTES

Another hugely idiosyncratic example of this great Campbeltown distillate. Smoked fruit jellies, coal dust, hay bales, straw-strewn cow sheds, farmyard aromas, salted game meats, mushroom powder, tobacco leaf, acrylic paints and varnished seashells. Reduction brought forth lemon curds, pollens, gorse flowers, rusks, bonfire smoke, fennel seed, salty liquorice, buttery pastry dough, smoked white fish and funky seashore minerals. The palate was immediately dense and populated with creosote, seawater, diesel fumes, tractor engines, gun oil, mineral salts, brine, green olives, sardines in olive oil, smoked tea and medical provisions such as Elastoplast, floor cleaner, herbs, esters and bandages. With water we got aged ointments, old school medical cough syrups, orange diluting juice, mustard-slathered game sausages, brown crab meat, malt vinegar, smoked sea salt and pickled onion crisps. Majestically funky, unusual and charismatic whisky.
