Spirit NOTES

The nose delivered an uplifting vibe – we imagined shafts of sunlight playing through fluffy clouds onto heathery hillsides sloping down to the springtime machair and the beach beyond – additional aromas of grass, haylofts, sweet nettle tea, nuts, rusks and digestive biscuits suggested a rather unusual picnic – definitely a fresh, outdoor dram. The palate somehow combined creaminess with sharper tingly sensations – creamed coconut and orange zest, stewed apples and custard, butter icing on cakes washed down with cloudy lemonade; it was further complicated by floral, nutty and chalky flavours and a mildly spicy finish of ground ginger and white pepper.
