Description

The alluring colour of orange toffee proceeded onto the nose with aromas of caramel, fudge and toffee apples, perhaps sprinkled with a light dusting of sea salt. Soft smoke drifted in with the sea air and carried with it the impression of scallops, sweet crabmeat and lobster nets tied with old nautical rope. Sea air became sea spray, dowsing the remains of a driftwood bonfire and scattering charcoal across the beach. Ginger and cloves were teasing with the idea of antiseptic antics but veered back towards cinnamon spice with caramelised brown sugar and salted honeycomb crunch. The finish embraced the maritime but with the lingering depth of dark chocolate mousse.
