Review and Tasting


Sampled on 09/12/2015

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Juniper, lemon zest and lemon meringue pie filling with black and white pepper, and Indian spice. Faint vegetal notes.

Taste:

Initially delicate, light and slightly sweet with light juniper, lemon zest and coriander, before strong peppery/chilli spice and stewed vegetal notes emerge.

Aftertaste:

Piney juniper, faint lavender and mixed peppery spice.

Overall:

Pronounced peppery spice characterises this London dry gin. Juniper is subdued, but only when compared to the forward peppery character. Pleasing lavender notes emerge in the spicy finish.
