Notes

A fragrant exterior of honeysuckle and seaside heather shrouded a heart of darker intent. Salted toffee and caramel wafers offered a sweet bridge across to sticky prunes, salted liquorice and tar-covered ropes. As coconuts washed up beside rock pools on the beach, dark fruit notes of blackcurrants, black cherries and dried cranberries conspired against fruit jelly sweets and prawn cocktails made with double cream. A wisp of menthol mingled with cinnamon and welcoming malty notes as honeycomb ice cream melted in the sun. Dry herbal notes arrived towards the end in a pan of sizzling prawns in butter, which faded slowly to fragrant peppermint on the finish.
