Back Spirit NOTES

Spirit NOTES

We found this dram to be clothed in wax jackets and wellies at first sniffing. Coal smoke was stuck to its clothes and it had clearly just come in out of the rain! Notes of watermelon charred over a burning whisky barrel. Hints of wet granite, cooling BBQ embers and some quietly frazzling bacon lardons. With reduction came scorched cinnamon sticks, petrol, varnished wood and salted butter with bobbing chunks of fudge. The mouth opened with masses of spice and rumbles of damp smoke. Coal sacks, heather ales, river reeds and wet clay. Some applewood smoked cheddar and hints of hot buffalo sauce. Water brought charred orange skins, iron filings, dried oregano and wild mint growing amongst nettles - all trampled by a hefty welly-booted whisky geek! A long, sizzling and smouldering finish follows on. In 2017 we combined selected hogsheads before returning the single malt to a variety of different casks to develop further. This is one of those casks.
