Notes

The panel imagined a pork roast scented with lavender and sun dried tomatoes with balsamic. Then warm leather, sticky molasses and tamarind paste before salt crusted barnacles emerged with fragrant peaty smoke. Time teased out toffee caramel and heather honey. To taste, they found layers of flavour: pickled ginger with pink grapefruit, lavender bath bombs, chocolate, peat and warm leather saddle. Water livened up proceedings with mint, blackcurrant pastille, kaffir limes leaves and damp seaweed. More pork and lavender tangled with a whiff of match smoke with fish wrapped in nori, and perfumed wood, mint and basil in the finale.
