Description

Smoke from a distant bonfire wafted past with the evocative aromas of burnt twigs and charcoaled wood. Sweet malt was delivered in hessian sacks whilst floral tones came from dried flowers, joined by a hint of lemongrass. The smoke thickened on the palate to that of a coal fire, however it sweetened with time to applewood smoke and kippers. Roasted chestnuts merged into hazelnuts drizzled with caramel and a suggestion of fruit welcomed crispy burnt blackcurrants. A tingle of smoked ginger brought a lengthy warmth to a finish garnished with burnt toffee, liquorice and lapsang souchong tea.
