In celebration of the Highland Whisky Festival 2021
We all looked at each other and nodded, yes there is a hint of smoke – not much but noteworthy, maybe like a wax jacket which hung in a room with a burning peat fire. On the palate - delicious hot-smoked salmon and parsley fishcakes with a zingy lemon mayonnaise dip. After a drop of water, the aroma was even more mouth-watering - smoky grilled shrimps in a Marie Rose sauce and to taste; bananas flambeed Caribbean style using butter along with dark-brown sugar, dark rum and lime juice. The smooth finish had plenty of refreshingly lemony flavours with a gentle herbal note.
