Spirit NOTES

Limited to 1 bottle per member

Typically thrilling at first nosing. Lots of umami broths, saline beach foam, sand, gorse, wind-raked rock pools, mineral salts, bath bombs, corn bread, sooty waxes, malt extract, hessian and lots of fresh pineapple chunks. Some kind of salty mead was mooted. Water enhanced the salinity and brought a more floral and fragrant side with additional notes of sunflower oil and bacon fat. The palate opened beautifully on white stone fruits, guava, menthol tobacco, pistachio ice cream and vanilla soda. More subtle notes of herbal cough syrups, jasmine tea and beach pebbles lingered underneath. With water we found a more easy and luscious side. Tutti frutti, gravely mineral notes, anthracite, salt and pepper calamari, lime pith and slightly sweet cereals.
