Notes

The salty smell of a sea shore breeze with aromas of pebble beach, rock pools and fresh washed up seaweed combined with the scent of burning heather moorland made us all feel like setting out on a good beachcombing expedition. On the palate neat it felt like dropping into a huge wave during a massive swell, which kept on building, exhilarating, exciting sensation of sea, salt, sweet and smoke – just keep riding that wave. With a drop of water sweeter aromas appeared like pineapple barbequed shrimps, sautéed shrimps tossed in a spicy sauce with chunks of pineapple and red peppers whilst the taste was now a sweet perfumed smoke of maple cured bacon and cinnamon & paprika sweet potato wedges.
