Notes

The nose was a whiff of maritime joy – enticing peat smoke drifting over rock pools and harbour scenes with tarry ropes and fish boxes – a table was set alfresco with gewürztraminer wine and greenshell mussels. The seafood banquet continued with water – prawn cocktail and barbecued sardines garnished with dried seaweed and fried sage leaves. The neat palate was a complex concatenation of satisfying and rewarding impressions – marshmallow Flumps, gooseberry, oily fish, salty ropes and awesome smoke. In reduction it tasted sweeter and slipped down much more easily – chalky sweets and jelly babies, gratifying smoke and an ashy finish.
