Review and Tasting
Sampled on 18/09/2017
Piney juniper, linseed oil putty (angelica perhaps) and black liquorice with zesty citrus.
Juniper forward (piney) with woody angelica, sweet almond, black pepper spice and delicate citrus.
Zesty citrus, piney juniper and cracked black pepper spice with faint nutty linseed.
A beautifully balanced, very characterful gin which is reassuringly dry in character for an old tom. Juniper forward with pleasing nutty linseed notes. The use of black pepper adds a pronounced spice which slightly detracts from other more delicate botanicals.
