Limited to 2 bottles per member

Our noses found sweetness (golden syrup, barley sugars, foamy shrimps), then smouldering campfires, hotdogs, spiced fruit punch and smoke drifting from the Battle of Trafalgar (one panellist was there). The palate served us charred steak with tarragon and rocket, chilli prawns on wooden chopsticks and burnt raisin fruit cake; possibly also inner tubes, chimney scrapings and chewing tobacco. The reduced nose again had sweetness (coconut macaroons, Caramac, jammy dodgers), pine wood crackling in a wood-burning stove, cigarette smoke and Dubbin on leather hiking boots. The reduced palate was still slightly grubby, but with magnetic quality – Eccles cakes, apple strudel, pepperami and humidors.
