Cask No. 53.374   

Tales from a scuttle


A delightful combination of buttered seaweed and cherry wood smoke merged with a petrol whiff of oil drums and coal dust mixed with thick yeast extract. Melted butter followed on the palate as it oozed over barbecued langoustines with scorched rosemary and salted anchovies doused in oil. A dash of water brought us bacon crisps and sea salt with singed coconut husks and notes of lavender and liquorice. Flavours unified as herbal peat morphed into smoked fish pie served with bergamot scented tea. The distinct woodiness of pencil shavings coated sweet stone fruits as the coal in the scuttle softened to light oil.
