Spirit NOTES

Immediately grassy with exotic fruits; a typical expression of this distillerys beautiful character. There was also citrus pith, fresh linens, lime oil, cheesecloth, chalk, fabrics, lychee, stone fruits and passionflower. A suggestive kiss of peat smoke in the depths somewhere. When adding water, we found citronella candles, soft ash, chalk, limestone, watercress and lighter fluid. The weight of everything intensified. The palate opened with soft but striking smokiness - light peat, squid ink, carbon paper, graphite oil, flinty mineral smoke and sea salt. Olive oil cut with brine, lights antiseptic and some salted pistachios. A bamboozling fusion of fruits and smoke. Water brought a superbly salty, resinous and lightly earthy medical side. Tart gooseberry acidity, grass, bitter herbal cough medicines, iodine drops, salty game meats and caraway distillate.
