A surprisingly fresh and floral aroma greeted the Panel before the more familiar scent, a mixture of sandy beaches, salty sea breeze and the sweet peat smoke, found us back on terra firma. The taste neat again came as a little surprise, very spicy and maybe even a little grubby, one panellist was reminded of a date, banana garam masala peanut butter smoothie – we took his word for it! With the addition of water, we imagined a foggy late morning on the beach with the mist lifting slowly and the first ray of sunshine warming our faces as our eyes lit up on being offered a slice of buttered malt loaf – rekindled romance!
