The Pirate Three-Pack

The initial aroma was described by some Panel members as funky whilst others visibly reclined and relaxed. Plenty of dark fruits, toffee, caramel, toasted marshmallows before the nutty creaminess of rum baba with poached pineapple and Chantilly cream emerged. A mouth-watering refreshing, although with a distinct heat of Szechuan pepper, made this quite an experience tasting neat. Adding some water the nose turned fresh, almost vibrant, like a lemon ginger mojito and now on the palate so mellow, caramelised rhubarb on toasted brioche and deliciously spicy and sweet like a glass of cinnamon-orange and ginger iced tea.


The nose neat offered plenty of sweetness; passion fruit soufflé in a brandy snap basket, mixed berries sorbet with vanilla shortbread cookies and rum crème caramel. However there were also slightly oily, maybe pickled olives or even petrol, aromas lurking in the background – but absolutely “no problem man!” On the palate plenty of spice; ginger pasta with curried sweet potatoes or wasabi-crusted chicken breasts dipped in a teriyaki sauce while in the finish a lingering salted dark chocolate and orange mousse. With water definitely a little petrol garage forecourt or a gas fired barbeque but the spice was now balanced with plenty of the sweet goodness we got on the nose neat – absolutely fabulous!



Plenty of sweetness on offer from the word go; loads of brown sugar on stewed rhubarb with star anise and ginger, creamy lemon banana pudding and fresh pineapples but also an oiliness like lemon maple syrup over tuna or mackerel. Deep and intensely sweet on the palate neat, think of crème brûlée flambé, coconut sticky rice in banana leaves and Pedro Ximenez Sherry raisin ice cream. With a drop of water oily notes at first, peppermint, linseed and walnut followed by roasted chestnuts and salted roasted almond brittle. The taste now sweet, fruity and juicy; cinnamon raisin pancakes with maple syrup and Malmsey Madeira over spiced waffles.
