Spirit NOTES

The nose enticed us with superficial sweet charms – candy cigarettes, banana chips, brown sugar and dried fruits – but we also detected cereal notes (muesli, sacks of grain) and apricot, grapefruit and Calvados fruitiness. The palate was a lip-smacking taste explosion of Rowntrees Tooty Frooties, strawberry bubblegum and pear eau de vie, with heavier notes of oak, white pepper and ginger on the finish. The reduced nose opened up like a fan – caramel syrup on ice-cream, toffee apples and cinnamon swirls, with various lemon references. The palate was a mouth-watering melange of mango, melon, white grape, pineapple and peach – flavourful and satisfying.
