Spirit NOTES

Limited to 2 bottles per member

This nose took us places – one to the Islay shore (breakers, beach bonfire ash, cooked prawns), another to Tsukiji fish market, Tokyo (7.00am, sushi and sake breakfast). The palate delivered a belch of hickory smoke, burning twigs and licking a coal shovel; also grilled langoustines and crusty bread, mango, pear and lemon acidity. On the reduced nose we found grilled pineapple with honey and chilli, crab meat with balsamic dressing, white jelly babies, Victoria sponge and cigar smoke. The palate now lulled us to a land of dark chilli chocolate, barbecued lobster and hotdogs and blissful contemplation – poetry in a glass.
