Review and Tasting
Sampled on 08/01/2019
Floral (centifolia and jasmine) with very subdued juniper and musky almost lichen-like aromas.
Floral and citrusy with woody/nutty angelica notes and more piney juniper than the nose might suggest (or is this Cade, which we are told adds “adds woody, piny facets”. Assertive spirituous peppery spice.
Red and black pepper corn spice masks lingering floral, almost soapy notes.
There’s something reminiscent of granny’s soap about this gin but its floral, perfume-like notes are subdued by assertive peppery spice.
