An immediate nose of caramelised brown sugar on freshly baked soda bread kicked things off. Lots of mineral oil, furniture polish, rosewater, bicycle inner tube, sweet children's cough medicines and natural tar extract. Reduction brought out summery red fruits in Pimm's, cocktail bitters, coconut cream and things like roast chocolate malt, singed toffee and soy sauce. The palate was initially spicy with plum wine, five-spice and hot cooking oils. Mustard powder, lanolin, bandages soaked in disinfectant and ground black pepper. With water, we got a silky smooth meatiness, BBQ char remnants, liquid seasonings, umami paste, wasabi peas, hot ramen broth and dry roast peanuts with cumin salt.
