The nose was a playful wrestling match between unctuous barley sweetness and gorgeous intimations of wood – orange syrup, barley sugars, marzipan petit fours and rum baba represented the former; the latter gave us cedar, sandalwood, hickory-smoked ribs and cinnamon. The palate was a blast of flavours – perfumed wood, Jamaican ginger cake, carrot cake, chilli and blackcurrant pastilles. In reduction, it tickled our noses with oak sawdust and breezes from an Indian market, especially gulab jamun and spice. The palate was still a taste bomb – honeyed baklava, hints of anise and.... well words dried up – replaced by lip-smacking sounds of private enjoyment.
