The nose gave cigar smoke and coal bunkers, honey on burnt sticks, green leaves on garden bonfires; an apothecary’s apprentice and a Fisherman’s Friend; also a faint meaty note. The meaty and the medicinal came through on the palate – bandages and Elastoplast, smoked duck and venison – plus citric smoke, clove and nutmeg spice – ‘dirty but good’ someone said. A maritime aspect appeared on the reduced nose – tarry driftwood, putty on portholes, lemon on oysters; vapour rub and lavender. The palate – dark chocolate gingers and aniseed balls and sea water sizzling on a barbeque grill; mouth-tingling dry smoke and Marmite to finish.
