Review and Tasting

Sampled on 27/12/2015

Appearance

Clean, golden amber.

Aroma

Pungent spicy resinous pine, eucalyptus and hay. Faint hints of smoky bacon/ Frazzles crisps. Water reveals lemon barley water and crushed mint leaves.

Taste

Piney juniper, dry toasty oak, warming spice and faint mint.

Aftertaste

Bark and smouldering wood with lingering aniseed and warming spice.

Overall

A big assertive gin with a high bottling strength amplifying dry oak tannins from oak aging – perhaps for too long, or in under seasoned casks.
