Review and Tasting

Sampled on 12/08/2013

Appearance

Clear, pale straw golden.

Aroma

Delightfully aromatic, orange marmalade boiling on the stove, dried tropical fruit, lemon meringue filling, hot-cross-buns dusted with cinnamon and warm clove spice.

Taste

Bitter sweet, dry oak, tangy orange marmalade with lemon verbena and overtones of pine and camphor from the juniper. Spicy notes include candied ginger, hops, cinnamon and clove spice.

Aftertaste

Buttery oak and pine with marmalade citrus and lingering spice. (The spicy oak masks the delicate notes seen in Smooth Ambler Greenbrier Gin. I’d love to try a three week aged rather than three months version of this.)
