Review and Tasting


Sampled on 09/04/2016

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Pungent creamy lemon curd and lemon zest with white pepper, clean hamster cage bedding and very faint ginger. Juniper is very subdued.

Taste:

There's a creaminess to this gin's mouthfeel, which like the nose is dominated by upfront zesty lemon and peppery spice. Again juniper notes are somewhat overwhelmed.

Aftertaste:

Peppery and piney juniper does emerge more in the zesty lemon finish.

Overall:

As the name suggests, creamy lemon curd and lemon zest dominate this gin to the extent that it is perhaps more a lemon distillate with other subtle botanical influences than it is, strictly speaking a gin. Hence, our categorising as a 'new western gin'. However, Malfy's lemon freshness does make this an appealing distillate.
