The nose was a Three Chimneys experience – breakfast (buttered crumpets, bread basket, peach, brandy snaps, lemon tea) in the library (old leather books; herb garden through the window; vestigial peat smoke in the hearth). The palate was deeply satisfying, with an intriguing dark side – gooseberry bushes washed by peaty rain; a perfumed lady swathed in smoke from the Jacobite steam train; honey sweet and samphire salty. The reduced nose found beach bonfires (with heather and hessian chucked on) and mussels cooked in white wine. The palate gave us sherbet straws, lavender, lemon, capers and dry peat smoke – unusual, long-lasting and agreeable.
