Spirit NOTES

This bottle is limited to 1 per member

A typical tropical day on Islay sitting on the beach late afternoon blowing up a beach ball with a peat fired barbeque roasting pineapple slices, peaches and marshmallows. Sharp, clean and clear, that typical gun-flint taste as we uncorked and poured a bottle of chilled Sauvignon Blanc wine called Pouilly-Fumé. After a splash of water we needed, due to a small accident, the first aid kit for some disinfectant. All done and we could relax again, this time with a refreshing long drink called ‘Smoke on Blonde’ – Manzanilla and Amontillado Sherry (both from Sanlúcar de Barrameda), spiced pineapple liqueur, orange bitters, fresh cut pineapple chunks and a very liberal dash of smoky whisky.
