The nose pricked our imaginations – evoking smouldering leaf bonfires, ‘tarpaulin-covered railway sleepers on low-loader and a firewalker’s sneakers’, charcuterie and venison cooked in red wine vinegar. The palate conjured hickory wood smoke, charred bacon and burnt marshmallows; also ‘licking a barber’s razor strop’, tar, aniseed and the scrapings of a burnt curry pot. The reduced nose combined liquorice and magic balloons, ‘a candle in a pumpkin lantern’ and ‘a burnt out car wreck’. Ash and brine on the reduced palate – caramels rolled in ash, candyfloss, burnt twigs, s’mores and vinegar on chips; then a dry, ashy, clove-ish finish – ‘Frightfully good!’
