- SMWS Tasting Notes: A sweet perfumed smokiness mixed with sea air and washed over oysters and crab meat sprinkled with chopped dill and parsley. Applewood-smoked fish hung beside peppered pickled herrings and soft leather whilst sweet notes came from mango, vanilla and salted popcorn. Then water landed us face-first into the saltwater of a rock pool. With sand in our hair and squelching shoes we lit a beach bonfire to dry damp wool and burn marshmallows on the ends of driftwood sticks. Finally, as beach sand mixed with melting ice cream cones we watched waves crash against the seaweed covered rocks beneath the lighthouse illuminated by a glowing sun as it kissed the Hebridean horizon.
