The nose took us on a sweet meander that incorporated honey and butterscotch with lemon mousse and butter pastry. Salted peanuts introduced savoury aspects that dipped in and out of rosemary and sage before settling on chicken broth. The meaty element expanded into Chinese glazed pork with a thick and sticky coating reminiscent of hoi sin sauce. The palate gave ample clearance for the sweet notes of vanilla and peach ice cream but they came with a sprinkling of coal dust and a return of herbal hues. The slightly tart fruit of sea buckthorn gave a racy lift that melted into burnt toffee just before a finish of chocolate bourbon biscuits and sticky cough syrup.
