Review and Tasting

Sampled on 30/05/2016

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Fresh and complex. Hints of pine and eucalyptus juniper, lime marmalade and spicy floral fragrances.

Taste

Slightly sweet and silky smooth, with a burst of juniper and citrus set against fresh green flavours. This is followed by cumin, cracked black pepper and salty liquorice back notes.

Aftertaste

Long and lingering with floral hints, stewed cucumber and a quinine and juniper bitterness.

Overall

Clean, well-balanced, herbal and floral. Juniper rightly leads this gin which is classically 'London dry' in style but with subtle notes of cucumber and rose. The cucumber notes are perhaps more cucumber skin than succulent flesh.
