Review and Tasting

Sampled on 16/02/2013

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Wonderfully aromatic and floral with pungent cracked black pepper spice. Complex scents of parma violet, lavender, camphor, balsa wood-like orris root and freshly cut celery (turns stewed vegetal is left for a prolonged period in the glass).

Taste

Clean and crisp with zesty citrus, lemongrass, juniper and zingy cracked black pepper. Silky mouthfeel despite the peppery bite which dominates the palate.

Aftertaste

Long, lingering lemongrass, black pepper and lavender influenced juniper.
