The nose neat had that sense of calmness and elegance which is simply irresistible. There was chamois leather, ginger sponge cake, cinder toffee, baked apples plus hints of hazelnuts, figs, nutmeg and exotic wood – the list could go on and on! On the palate, rich, mellow and smooth, gentle, refined and sublime. We had to go exotic here, like roasted nectarines with labneh, herbs and honey – a combination that simply cannot fail to please. The tiniest drop of water, if you wish, and you will be rewarded with the scent of heather, bergamot and candied brazil nuts while to taste Samai salted plantain chips.
