A glorious Indian saffron colour hinted towards the journey on which we were about to embark. Our sensory excursion began with the wonderful aromas of brandy butter over hazelnuts, walnuts and smoked almonds before the winds carried us east towards five spice, cardamom and nutmeg. The going was calm and smooth as we crossed intensely orange lakes with aromas that veered towards smoked marmalade with ginger. Herbal background notes became more dominant with the addition of water and suggested the presence of red liquorice, fennel and heather whilst the refreshing twang of quince jelly retained a lively temperament. The palate was a supremely joyous expedition through roasted chestnuts and smoked toffee apples with sweet red onion chutney and soft leather before a long finish of candied ginger and after dinner mints.
