Review and Tasting
Sampled on 11/06/2017
(sample bottle release No.3, year 2016) Crystal clear (faint cloud with water).
Piney juniper, peppery spice, lime oils, zesty orange and lavender with faint overripe banana, turmeric and ginger.
Black peppery spice, earthy piney juniper, sweet lime and zesty orange with turmeric, cinnamon and lavender.
Dry earthy piney juniper, zesty citrus, black pepper and turmeric with lingering bitterness.
Strong in alcohol strength and character with assertive zesty citrus and spices such as turmeric, this is far from 'London dry' in style – understandably – it's distilled on the other side of the world from London in Australia.
