Review and Tasting

Sampled on 14/08/2017

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Somewhat reminiscent of curry house spice with cardamom and turmeric, then piney juniper and cracked black pepper.

Taste

Piney juniper is more pronounced on the palate with assertive coriander, cardamom, turmeric and cracked black pepper spice.

Aftertaste

Long coriander, turmeric and cardamom finish with lingering spice.

Overall

Most gins are spiced, but Opihr is heavily spiced. Piney juniper still prevails and Opihr is still recognisable as a gin, but as the label declares, it's a "oriental spiced London dry gin." It makes a tasty spicy G&T and can be used very creatively in cocktails. However, classic London gin lovers beware, this is not your kind of gin.
