The nose conveyed tasty, smoky things – maple-cured bacon, smoked fish and shellfish and Lapsang Souchong – behind that we detected lighter tones of floral perfumes, restrained TCP*, teryaki beef and blackcurrant. The palate, true to character, balanced big, mouth-filling smoke and breath-taking wood-char with pleasing honey sweetness. We also got a savoury, meaty layer and the heat of ginger, pepper and clove. The reduced nose – aniseed mouthwash, driftwood bonfires and a confectionery stall near rock-pools. The reduced palate – liquorice, Tiger Balm, salted caramel and smoke. Thumbs up all round but one or two panellists went completely crazy for it. (*mild antiseptic based on phenols)
