We are in the engine room of an old puffer and someone has dropped a vial of lemon infused smelling salts. Someone else is wearing beer drenched lederhosen in the corner for some reason. All around there are notes of coal hearths, lanolin, a distant hospital on a seashore breeze. Then some wafts of old farmyard equipment, silage, anthracite embers and a sprinkle of dried sage. Water brings rusted metal, hessian, paraffin wax and earl grey tea sipped in the warmth of a beach bonfire. The mouth is riddled with minty smoke, wood ash, various farmyard and seashore aspects and a whisper of peat. Reduced it displays a carbolic edge with boiled sweets, eucalyptus peated wort and lemon oils.
