SMWS Panel Notes
In the corner of a dark and damp dunnage warehouse a single beam of light danced over the cracked putty of a broken window and illuminated a pile of charred wood and wine corks. The air merged aromas of dried orange skin and grapefruit oil with the heavy spices of cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon. Red fruits waited in the shadows alongside walnuts and Brazil nuts while hot cross buns joined sweet crumbly biscuits.
Water washed away thick layers of dust to uncover old leather and tobacco while a blanket of incense smoke brought turmeric and green tea. Damp leaves were scattered on the floor, however through the darkness came dried mango, apple tarts and melon sweets with butterscotch and cocoa nibs that lasted into a finish bound by cream soda.
