Spirit NOTES

The nose – well, ‘two roads diverged in a yellow wood’ – chocolate Swiss roll, Demerara, parma violets and cherries with crème anglaise to the left – and bran flakes, wicker baskets, mahogany wood and Imperial Leather soap to the right. On the palate, the left road was bourbon biscuits, fudge, sherbet lemons and plum sauce; turn right for chewing twigs, star anise and Fisherman’s Friends. The reduced nose counterpointed waffle cones and pistachio macarons against Weetabix, ladies handbags and antique furniture. The palate now found coffee matchmakers and crystallised orange slices dipped in chocolate, then a finish of clove, nutmeg, chilli and ginger.
