Notes

Seductive wisps of sweet smoke suggested sizzling bacon, scorched coconut husk and smoked almonds while salted peanut butter led us towards a fresh sea breeze washing over dried kelp. The palate surprised us with cherry and rhubarb cordial before malted grains joined warm popcorn rolled in burnt butter and dusted with cinnamon and a squeeze of bitter lemon. With water we discovered peat smoked oranges and toffee with hints of delicate wild flowers. Then the vanilla driven oak of bourbon whiskey introduced tea tree oil and dried thyme. Flavours of mandarin and peach melba now merged with angelica root and liquorice as smoke lingered until the finish where it was joined by orange oil.
