Description

We got immediate gentle smoke on the nose – then brown sugar and vanilla (sticky toffee pudding, a slightly over-done custard slice, a bakery near a recently burnt heather moor). The smoke and ash were more obvious on the palate, but balanced beautifully with dark, scrumptious sweetness (molasses, treacle toffee, expensive plain chocolate, humbugs) and a dry, mouth-tingling finish of cinnamon and nutmeg. The reduced nose was serene – machair, macerated fruits and honeysuckle, plus incense, Turkish Delight and marrons glacés in an ultra-posh, celebrity yurt. The palate was dangerously quaffable – chocolate marshmallows, bacon-wrapped prunes, maple and pecan Danish, lebkuchen and sticky gingerbread.
