Piney juniper, camphor and lavender with angelica and cinnamon spice (the later perhaps from cassia. Pungent and spicy yet regal nose.
Dry and clean with upfront juniper and generous herbal spice – perhaps a tad too generous. (Unusually the concentrated flavours of this gin might benefit from diluting with additional neutral spirit before hydrating to bottling strength. There again it stands up well to tonic.)
Pronounced lavender and pine in a long punchy finish. Stands out for being distilled from fermented honey and not third-party produced grain neutral spirit.
