Notes

What a nose! Barbecued lobster meat and flame-grilled cheese scallops were followed by crème brûlée and pecan pie. On the palate, smooth and oily, we found smoked sardine rillettes made with Greek yoghurt, butter, lemon, fresh herbs and capers, served on toast. On the side we had a glass of amontillado sherry from Sanlucar – described as “not for the fainthearted but a must-try for sherry lovers”. We then dowsed the beach barbecue with sea water and to finish enjoyed a slice of spinach, caramelised onion, smoky bacon and goat's cheese tart. Following five years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a first fill American oak PX hogshead.
