Blowtorch blast

Islay

The first impression was like a burning gorse bush which after a while moved on to toasted coconut and roasted peanuts as well as smoked mackerels with rhubarb and ginger. The initial taste felt like you had just blowtorched those mackerels together with a few tuna steaks and served them with hot horseradish sauce and heavily charred blood oranges. Water added the sweet fruitiness of apple crumble and hickory smoked grilled peaches whilst on the palate a lot sweeter as well, the peaches now being pickled or made into a smoked jam, with a fragrant lemongrass and menthol cigarette smoke finish.
