A typically surreal nose for this crazy make. Peat smoked honey, an old leather armchair, coal scuttles, smoked elderflower cordial and an incrementally increasing medicinal quality. Pencil shavings in a first aid kit! With water we found it shifted more definitively westwards with more pure medical qualities, seashore freshness, clothes worn by a bonfire the night before and raw tar.
The mouth was velvety and smoky at first. Dark chocolate with chili, vanilla panna cotta and campfire embers. Hugely smoky but decadently creamy at the same time. With reduction it became more ashy with some caramel popcorn, wild thyme, sage pork crackling and bursting plumes of wood and peat smoke.
