It’s a hot afternoon at race day in Barbados. We can smell moist hay in the air and a spiciness that reminds us of a Rum Bloody Mary. Someone in the stands lights up a cigar with their Zippo and the blend of lighter fuel and smoke wafts across our noses. On the palate, there’s scorched leather and rubber saddle on the back of a thoroughbred, kicking up dust as it gallops on the dusty track, ending up in your mouth like a mist of sandalwood.
