Description

With an intense and life affirming slap around the face with a smoked kipper we awoke to the heavy peat reek of charcoaled sardines. Seaweed and tarry ropes produced the image of standing at the end of the pier with sea spray in the wind as we enjoyed a smoked seafood platter. There was an undeniable scent of first aid box with antiseptic and bandages but with the heavy notes of oil on a mechanic’s overalls. Water released more sweetness in the form of parma violets, vanilla, liquorice and sugar-coated fennel seeds while the finish returned to its core of old fish boxes and squid ink.
