A wonderfully evocative nose greeted the panel, one brimming with sharp lemon juice, carbolic wash acidity, men's deodorant, suncream and shrimp flash-frying in hot oil. Some preserved lemons in brine, pickled onion crisps, bath bombs and malt vinegar on chips. Water brought out pork fat, putty, seawater, anthracite embers, bog myrtle and wet beach pebbles. In the mouth, there were capers, tartar sauce, duck fat, animal furs, sheep wool, olive brine and pickling juices. A dirty martini garnished with steel wool and creosote. Reduction brought coal tar soap, sandalwood, German Rauchbier, oyster juices, motor oil, sage and onion stuffing, smoked herbs and wet seaweed.
