An evocative island nose – tarry ropes, fisherman’s wellies, rock-pools, seashells, crabs claws, seaweed burning on a driftwood beach bonfire and ‘herbal’ cigarettes. The palate boasts powerful sweet smoke, burnt sticks, char-grilled fish and a warming finish of spiced chutney, glowing embers, clinker and ash. The reduced nose starts to pick up hints of toffee, vanilla custard, sherbet lemons and fruits in sponge cake – but the main impression is a beachcomber’s stash of shells, driftwood and random bits of plastic and metal beach gleanings. The reduced palate combines fudge, caramelised sugar and ice-cream, burnt heather, peat ash, menthol and toasted cumin seeds.
