The palate was an enigmatic mix of biscuit wafers, pear belle Helene and a cream soda float, with marshmallows toasted on green sticks, burnt paper and tobacco – a 1950’s cafe perhaps. The palate delivered chocolate fondants, toffee, burnt caramel and blackcurrant jam on toast, then surprising wasabi heat and a lick of peat smoke, aniseed and charred wood; a disputatious dram. The reduced nose had toasted bannocks, apple strudel with ice cream, cinnamon buns and a curious wisp of wood smoke. The palate had green apples and melon, nutty Magnums and crystallised ginger, with a hint of hickory chips smoking on charcoal.
