Back Spirit NOTES

Spirit NOTES

Instantly there’s a big hit of mercurochrome, germoline and petrol. Smoked dried pineapple doused in ointments, seawater and olive oil. Black olive tapenade, sweet ash, lime zest, oyster sauce and raw lemon juice. A big bucket of disinfectant. Water lures out peppered mackerel, fishing wellies, limeade, midge repellent and citronella candles with creel nets and a farmy funk of sheep wool and aged mutton. The palate is mahoosive. Lots of fish sauce, tar, herbal toothpaste, Madagascan vanilla, salted almonds and fruit salad. Salted fish sloshing about in brine. With water there’s seared scallops, TCP, subtle wafting peat smoke and sour cherry beer.
