Review and Tasting
Sampled on 31/01/2015
(bottle No. 4741) Crystal clear.
Pronounced woody and nutty angelica root with coriander seed spice and floral eucalyptus pine.
Dry and resinous piney juniper, zesty citrus, cassia and coriander seed spice. There is an underlying minty note but without being told of the use of Lebanese mint we’re not sure we’d have identified it as such.
More nutty angelica is very evident in the finish.
This is a dry and nutty London dry gin with a traditional taste profile. The use of Lebanese mint is judicious and integrates with the other botanicals rather than being the headline act as the brand’s marketing perhaps suggests.
