    Notes von der SMWS-Website: www.smws.com/umami-you-ve-been-on-my-mind

    Ausgabepreis: 80,00 GBP

    "The nose immediately brings to mind the Island origins of this classic make. Immediate aromas of preserved lemons in brine, lime jelly, coal smoke, anthracite embers, fruit-flecked bonfire smoke and chimney dust. There's also dunnage, hessian, green peppercorns and bandages doused in seawater. A little reduction gives coal tar soap, freshly landed white fish, crab meat, citrus oils, salted flat bread, gauze, old rope, struck flints and mineral salts. In the mouth the arrival is thick and saline like a spoonful of salted butter. There's the impression of hay lofts, paraffin, lemon cordial, barley sugar and long-fermented miso. A light waxiness buoys the texture and holds everything together with panache! Water brings waxed baking parchments, old sail cloths, bicycle chain grease, delicate antiseptic notes, chopped parsley and sardines marinated in oil. A final flush of squid ink in the finish."
