Back Spirit NOTES

Spirit NOTES

The initial nose was wonderfully - and classically - herbal and mentholated. Lots of pointed notes of menthol tobacco, mint tea, bouquet garni, smoked sea salt, wet beach pebbles and sandalwood. Wonderfully evocative and fresh. A little water brought a pure and superbly fresh coastal vigour. Lots of wintergreen, myrtle, sheep wool oils and mineral salts. The palate was initially lightly smoky, sooty and full of limestone, putty, camphor and citrus pith. Tiny hints of blood orange, olive tapenade and bonfire embers. Water revealed sweeter cereal notes, cinnamon toast, cooling wort, peppery waxes, roast asparagus and wispy peat. Matured for 13 years in a bourbon hogshead before transfer to first fill STR barrique.
