Notes

It opens, rather delightfully, on fragrant lapsang souchong. Then green olives in brine, salted butter, flatbreads, limestone, bacon fries and hot smoked paprika. A wee seared tuna nicoise salad. With water comes spiced biltong and other cured meats, peat ashes, kippers, smoked mussels, anchovies and capers. A slug of seawater in a tidal rockpool. The palate is full of peat oils, lime juice, tar, wood ash, beach pebble minerality, camphor and squid ink. Moving towards salt and vinegar crisps and fish n chips with water. There’s also more medicine after dilution; lots of iodine, antiseptic and gauze. Previously spent 9 years in a bourbon hogshead.
