Back Spirit NOTES

Spirit NOTES

The nose is fresh, light, grassy and floral, like a spring meadow – clover honey, vanilla, candied angelica, fondant icing – also some tree sap, sandalwood and teak. On the palate there are sweet notes – honey on oak, strawberry ice-cream and sugar-coated fennel seeds, but also peeled twigs, hay, candied ginger, black tea and liquorice on the finish. The reduced nose combines sweetness with spice – brown sugar, sultanas, toffee, glacé cherries, Oddfellows sweets, rhubarb, ginger jam and white pepper. The palate is bittersweet now – bitter lemons, vanilla pods in caster sugar; and then wood, menthol and pepper give it a spice kick in the tail.
