Aromas of Jamaican gingerbread, funky farmyard (similar to Brettanomyces), rubber and orange juice mingle with sea breeze and sticking plasters.
Initially soft and sweet, with juicy orange, nutmeg, powdered cinnamon and ginger, before a salt-lined stick of charcoal draws a line across the palate. Pine resin and Szechuan pepper pop up too.
The gingerbread cake makes a comeback, with 70 per cent dark chocolate.
The nose is a little peculiar at first, but the solid flavours put those doubts to rest.
