Notes

An immediate hit of raw oysters doused in iodine and lemon juice. Then kippers rolled up in a well smoked carpet, dried sage, menthol cigarets, a slosh of turpentine and black olives in brine. Pure, sharp as a blade and precise as a dart. Water brings smoked chalk, fresh lime juice, peat ashes, kelp-lashed wellies and fishing nets. The palate continues this chiselled profile and again, the initial impression is of iodine along with all manner of medical excess: TCP, antiseptic, germoline, hospitals, gauze, mercurochrome and bandages. There’s a grizzly, gristy smokiness simmering underneath as well. After dilution there’s a wobble of lemon jelly, salted fish, puffer smoke and sea water. Big, blustery and full of Atlantic freshness.
