Holy smoke! Citrus smoke! Let’s bake a lemon cheesecake in a salmon smoke house! Plenty of peat on the palate neat; smoke, fire and ash! We imagined standing too close to a fire-eater in full action and as a consequence, our hearts certainly missed a beat. When we added water there was at first a phenol rush, followed by sweet pipe tobacco smoke and we finished by either burning driftwood on the beach or grilling fish on an open fire in a frying pan. On the palate we enjoyed slightly burnt marinated kippers seasoned with freshly ground black pepper.
