Back Spirit NOTES

Spirit NOTES

The nose was punchy, salty and smoky - a peat-fire hearth, wood shavings in a boatyard and something slightly medicinal; but also peanut brittle, nougat and custard creams. The palate balanced penetrating smoke with Liquorice Allsorts and burnt twigs dipped in honey; it also had savoury notes of salty grilled prawns and five-spice belly pork cooked on a beach bonfire. The reduced nose evoked tarred ships timbers, rock-pools and Cullen skink served with white wine; beach surf and wreckers; cliff-top fires conjured a scene from Poldark. The palate now combined crispy fried seaweed, mackerel pate with oatcakes, aniseed balls and bothy wood-smoke.
