SPIRIT NOTES

Like liquid sunshine, golden aromas of sweet sultanas, creme caramel and egg custard tarts dusted with cinnamon joined quince jelly on a charcuterie board. The palate was abundant with soft fruits, custard remained but now alongside baked apples, apricot jam and peaches and pears poached in red wine. Adding water delivered us to a tropical beach with hot sand, dried papaya and smoked beef jerky. Soft peaches returned on the palate to compliment gooseberry fool, citrus groves and a hint of coal tar on the finish. After spending 13 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a 2nd fill port barrique for the remainder of its maturation.
