Give this one time to open up and you will be richly rewarded. At first with ras el hanout (a Moroccan spice mix) followed by macadamia praline and Frangelico and espresso granite parfait as well as chocolate ginger lychees. Deep, brooding and dangerous on the palate, well-balanced sweetness and spice transported us to Rick’s café in Casablanca where Sam plays the piano and sings “As time goes by”. With water, its like the warm wind rustling in the palm trees of an oasis in the middle of the desert where we were sitting in a Bedouin tent smoking apple shisha.
