A wisp of clean sweet peat smoke followed by rich and creamy lobster bisque with pure sea salt seasoning was spiralling up from the glass – we were all happily daydreaming. The taste neat brought us back to reality (in a good way). Cullen skink with peat smoked haddock, vanilla curry and anchovy straws gave this an enthralling sweet and salty twist. Even more foodie with a drop of water, aromas of whelks with garlic butter, smoked mussels and stir-fried greens with oyster sauce were followed on the palate by sweet creamy lemon mint cake and lime blossom honey on salted buttered toast.
