Spirit NOTES

We played on the beach – buckets, spades, wet towels, bonfire, frankfurters and lobster – when a mermaid emerged dripping from the water, perfumed seaweed around her neck; she smiled and lit up a cheroot. The palate's indisputable smoke dispelled our reverie – coal smoke, asphalt, burnt prawn shells, peppered langoustines and hot rauchbier mixed with molasses. The reduced nose was a harbourside barbeque, with oil slicks on the water and wetsuits hanging over the rail. The palate was an exciting mix of juicy crab claws, peat smoke, pebbles, toffee popcorn and caramelised almonds, coal tar soap and plasters – le peat reek, c’est magnifique!
