Smoky, salty and malty – a beech smoked beer with fresh lime zest, orange peel, coriander seed and a pinch of sea salt. On the palate, big on the peat smoke but nicely balanced by mixed spices, blackberries, sourdough bread and sweet potato gnocchi with samphire. With a drop of water, we could literally smell the sea with a trawler and a Clyde Puffer in the distance as well as the ferry coming from Tobermory to the slipway at Kilchoan. An amazing texture - creamy salted caramel cheesecake, homemade strawberry fruit rollups and in the long finish an exciting exotic smoky incense combined with sandalwood and coconut.
