Spirit Notes

The nose spiralled from earthy base notes of cask char, black pepper and rye through mid orchestra exotic woods into heavenly harmonies of toffee apples, rum fudge and lemongrass. The palate stirred deep swirls of ash and toasted oak up into malted biscuits and wood resins, with top notes of heather flowers and freeze-dried strawberries. Water sweetened the nose to crème brulée, manuka honey and Sauternes, with hints of orange, lemon, rosewater and tobacco. The palate found pumpernickel bread, muesli, almonds and ginger, maple-cured bacon and waxy cherries. After eight years in an oloroso butt we transferred this into a heavy-char first-fill puncheon.
