Spirit NOTES

Bottles limited to 1 per member

A rather bonkers aroma greeted the Panel. Full on soot and sweet farmyard notes. Some kind of fermenting bacon, dried kelp, old rope, natural tar extract, bitter herbal cough medicines, peppered mackerel, silage, old rubber fishing wellies, smoked sea salt, mud and wood char. Also burning straw and dark German rauch bier. Reduction brought caraway, putty, pickled onion crisps, herring in brine, black olives and cured game meats. The palate is immediately big, powerful and impressive. Notes of smoked olive oil, tar, iodine, anthracite, bandages, hospital floor cleaner, embrocations, mercurochrome and antiseptic. Also getting increasingly minty and mentholated. Water unveils cullen skink, ointment, picking juices, machinery oils, mineral salts, diesel fumes and smoked mint tea. Unhinged but slightly genius.
