Spirit NOTES

This bottle is limited to 1 per member

A big and uncompromising initial aroma of pickled ginger, black olives, smouldering silage and singed orange peel. We then found notes of Marmite on brown toast and some puffs of boiler smoke. Reduction brought with it an autumnal kitchen baking up a storm, roasted peanuts, smoked marmalade and gutsy, oily smokiness. On arrival in the mouth we noted brown sugar, fig chutney, heather ale, liquid smoke seasoning, charred lobster and exotic mixed pickles. Water softened things slightly but retained plenty raw power. Lots of hot cocoa, smashed cola cubes, smoky bacon jam, red onion chutney and brown sauce. Matured for seven years in a bourbon hogshead before being transferred to a first fill STR barrique - thats shaved, toasted and re-charred.
