An engaging nose, in need of an imaginative description – how about cold smoked salmon with sweet pickles, crème fraiche and a wasabi gazpacho garnished with caviar? On the palate neat there was plenty of smoke as well as tar to begin with, but then the sweetness of glazed smoked duck with candied kumquat developed and in the finish slightly medicinal. With a drop of water crispy tempura battered prawns with a soy and chilli dip, whereas to taste now a wonderful balance between sweet fruitiness and smoke - like grilled peaches over a peat fire filled with molasses and dusted with cinnamon.
