Notes of twiglets and marmite smothered toast greeted the Panel at first nosing. Along with vinegar soaked fish and chips, salted crab meat, mercurochrome, nettles, elastoplast and burnt caramel. With a little water we also found a rusted shipwreck, pin-sharp lemon juice, lime cordial, dense heathery smoke, silage, smoked tea and burning kelp. The mouth was pure mezcal with peated olive oil, camphor, liquorice chews and smoked lavender. Water added salted toffee, monkey nuts, tobasco, bacon lardons, menthol cigarette ash and grilled scallops.
