Notes

The initial nose neat was like caramelised roasted peanuts followed by a green salad with tangy lemon vinaigrette and salty, nutty Pecorino Romano cheese. A lively sweet puff of smoke, combined with a tangy grapefruit tart topped by toasted coconuts and chopped pistachios, entertained us on the palate neat. Very maritime when we added some water; a historic Clyde puffer steaming out of the harbour as well as fresh seaweed washed onto the shore, and to taste - still the intense sweet peat smoke, a hot bowl of oyster mushroom and mussel chowder. In the finish fairly dry, slightly salty with a teasing hint of bitterness, as found in very dark chocolate.
