The nose started out with gentle smoke and burnt sticks, then we were in a boat shed or car garage by an island harbour – we also got some medicinal notes (Germolene, antisceptic). The palate was a perfect balance of dark chocolate-coated marzipan sweetness and teasing smoke, with crystallised citrus peel, wet ash, Euthymol and Friar’s Balsam. Adding water brought out more of the medicinal side of the nose, along with charred orange peel, walnut shells and whole prawns on the barbecue. The palate kept up its intensity of flavour – lemon skin, prawn shells, scorched heather, tar and mouth-drying, chalky parma violets.
