We all looked at each other, are you getting the same as me? Yes, smoke! Roasted Tonka beans with the aromatic scent of burnt vanilla and bitter almonds. A fragrant smoke on the palate neat – could it be that the valley of the green grass and the surrounding heathery hills were on fire? A real mystery what happened here, a 2nd fill bourbon barrel, but what was the first fill? After we added water salted caramel, sage and treacle next to cinnamon-stewed apples and roasted chestnuts on the nose appeared. The taste was now sweet, lightly smoked pears with gingersnap stuffing and a dollop of soft whipped cream.
