Description

The aromas painted a picture for us. A new hand-carved wooden quaich sat upon a freshly polished table, finished with a coating of beeswax. The room was filled with an intense perfume, floral and heady, elderflower and orange blossom. There was a small china plate with a pyramid stack of high quality marzipan coated in dark chocolate. To taste, tart cranberries, juicy blueberries and a mango lassi (Indian mango smoothie with yogurt, cardamom, lime and honey). The spice in the lassi was augmented by candied fennel seeds and sweetened liquorice. Where would a touch of water lead us? Effervescence in the form of orange “PEZ” sweets, chalk dust or dry ice at the theatre, physalis, crunchy bars and dark butterscotch. The taste reminded us of Werther’s Originals, white grape juice (again slightly effervescent) and crème brûlée. The finish was like an Old Fashioned cocktail with a side of dried apricots. One for bourbon lovers!
