Some tendrils of nutty smoke drifted by and the incoming tide washed out our beach bonfire, but not before we enjoyed the salted prawns, followed by lemon ice-lollies and vanilla ice-cream. The palate, hot and lively initially, suggested rock-salt, heathery smoke and liquorice. Adding water brought intimations of sea breezes, dying embers and busy harbours to the nose, with additional notes of toasted coconut, cut grass and flowers appearing. The palate now developed heather and lavender syrup, green tea and peat smoke – an interesting mix of sweet and juicy in the mouth, but becoming dry and smoky as it evaporated.
