Review and Tasting

Sampled on 05/10/2014

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Surprisingly subdued. The high alcohol content appears to lock-in botanical aromas. Piney juniper emerges with lemony notes akin to lemon meringue pie filling with red pepper corns. A splash of water releases musky nutty scents from the angelica root and fragrant aromas from the coriander seeds.

Taste

Sampled neat this high-strength gin has a surprisingly mild alcohol attack. Piney juniper and coriander sing out with a perceived slight sweetness subduing lemon and black pepper notes. Perversely, the addition of water appears to amplify the peppery spiced notes with sweet coriander.

Aftertaste

Pine and lavender juniper notes with coriander and lingering cracked black pepper.
