Burnt toast in a bookshop

sold out

The nose conveyed the welcoming appeal of walking into an old bookshop, abundant in curiosity and linseed oil ingrained deep into well-used wooden shelves. Soft leather-bound books mingled with a light peppery tingle before turning over to floral features and clementine commentaries with the soothing scent of citrus oil. The palate was an extended volume that expanded into burnt butter, smoked cream and the singed skin of an orange. Toasted crumpets and granola breakfast cereal combined with sticky toffee to create a chewy and pleasing mouth feel. Water turned a page to release sweeter icing sugar and jelly sweets with a soft finish that brought our attention back to the bookshelves.
