HMPDN 2013 Tasting Notes

Color: Amber

Nose: Esters sing songs of rubber and bananas, dirty funk, lemongrass, flax seeds, duck tamarind, hyacinths and cloves. There's tarnished metal, boat polish, graphite, and mud mask packs.

On the palate: It's funk and dirty with aromas of tires, flambéed overripe bananas, dark chocolate, paprika, lemongrass, currant jelly, grass, very fresh sugar cane, rye bread and chrome “Art Deco” trays.

Finish: Rubber fins and tuba, milk chocolate hazelnuts, vanilla essence and overripe bananas in a tamarind sauce on a metal plate, plus Darjeeling tea at the very end of the very long and lingering finish.

Conclusion: A dram you won't forget, full of surprises and intense flavours!

Meet The Founder

Michael Barbaria

Swell de Spirits was founded by Michael Barbaria in 2021. Michael's two great loves in life are exceptional spirits, and surfing. So he launched independent bottler Swell de Spirits to combine his love of both.

In a relatively short period Michael has made a big mark on the world of artisan spirits. And gained quite a fan base around the world. Rather than focus on one particular spirits category, Michael bottles them all - as he loves them all. From world whiskies, through rums, to cognacs and more. But what they all have in common is that they really are exceptional quality. Michael has an excellent palate and leans towards big flavour bombs. Each of his releases is beautifully present, and some of the label designs are works of pop art in their own right.
