- SMWS tasting notes:
The scent of smoked mussels, smoked kippers on chorizo and potato salad as well as red snapper baked in rosemary flavoured salt transported us all to a Mediterranean fishing village. The first impression when we tried it was all “sensation”; big intense sweet, floral perfumed smoke combined with a hint of fresh eucalyptus. Second time round, the smoky, salty and sweet/sour flavours appeared; grilled tuna steak with a lemon caper soy sauce. Diluted; aromas of red onion and rosemary focaccia and fried salt-cured anchovies sandwiched between sage leaves and to finish, refreshing salted caramel and green tea flavoured ice cream.
DRINKING TIP: Add some Mediterranean warmth to a beach barbeque in Scotland
