Review and Tasting

Certificate

Sampled on 21/06/2018

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Juniper forward, fairly classic nose with attractive floral and citrusy aromas. Faint aniseed.

Taste

Distinctive floral (violet) lightly bready with good piney juniper and nutty notes. Light floral and aniseed.

Aftertaste

Palate continue through the very well-balanced finish with light spice and star anise.

Overall

1689’s royal blue bottle perhaps masks the glorious gin inside which is classic London Dry in style but with attractive bready, nutty, floral and citrus notes and a touch of star anise.
