The aromas of sweet perfumed peat smoke lured us deeper and deeper into the glass and with almost mystical powers led us on a spiritual journey. The taste neat woke us all back up with sweet and sour heavily charred pork ribs in a lime and chilli barbeque sauce and chewy oatmeal apple sauce raisin cookies spiced with cinnamon and cloves. Water added smoked mussels on avocado toast (mashed avocado seasoned with lemon juice, chilli and pepper) on the nose, whilst on the palate we have gone full circle now and are on the deck of a ship sailing into the sunset with our minds drifting and dreaming.
