The nose delivered salted caramel, marmalade on leather, tarry ropes and the surgeon’s cabin on an old sailing ship. The palate had an innocent side (strawberry jam, vanilla, sugared almonds) and a darker side of ginger snaps, spiced dark rum, salty manzanilla and tar, with a finish of pink peppercorns and red liquorice – a pirate’s tipple perhaps. The reduced nose was as dark and enigmatic as an oil rig’s moon pool – bramble jam, tobacco tins, a watchmaker’s workbench and boats in harbour. The palate now had hard-boiled candies, cinnamon, seaweed, walnuts and hints of a cowboy's chewing tobacco spittoon.
