A fascinating sweet smoke greeted the Panel, honey-smoked chicken with sweet chilli sauce or an oolong smoked duck breast before we washed it all down with an American cream soda and then finished with poached pears Belle Helene. The taste neat was sweet perfumed peat smoke and a spicy tannic heat, combined with phenolic, tarry and tobacco flavours, all individually extremely powerful, but in combination well balanced like an egg on a needle point. Water transported us into a wigwam with an open fire place drying magic mushrooms and eating smoked jerk chicken wings with a spicy honey-tamarind glaze.
