Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/07/2012

Appearance

Clear, transparent.

Aroma

Citrus and juniper led nose, akin to pine and lemon meringue pie filling, with herbal, spicy, rooty notes.

Taste

Minerally palate more dominated by lemon citrus than juniper – although the two seem to be in battle rather than in harmony. Rooty, herbal notes emerge.

Aftertaste

Citrus finish is reminiscent of packed pasteurised lemon juice rather than fresh zest.
