Back Spirit NOTES

Spirit NOTES

The aroma was earthy and very old with a surprisingly fresh, fruity scent as we imagined a dunnage warehouse storing fresh strawberries, pears and blueberries in wooden crates. The unreduced palate was unbelievably mellow and chocolatey just like a classic Viennese Sacher Torte made with layers of chocolate, apricot preserve and a shiny chocolate mirror glaze finish. Diluted, an antique solid oak writing bureau desk and a silver inkwell appeared whereas the flavour was that of Simnel cake made with glace cherries, dried apricots, candied lemons and orange peel sultanas and raisins and a good glug of Monbazillac sweet wine. After twelve years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a 1st fill Oloroso sherry hogshead.
