Product of: United Kingdom
Launched in March 2019, this is the first of what promises to be a series of limited editions from Bombay Sapphire. English Estate adds three new botanicals: pennyroyal mint, rosehip and toasted hazelnut, in addition to Bombay Sapphire’s usual ten botanicals.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 09/05/2019
Spicy, nutty, floral and citrusy.
Piney juniper and a blast of Bombay spice but with a soft mouthfeel, attractive floral notes and a dry nuttiness. Mint is evident but well integrated.
Floral notes - more violet than rose, are particularly evident in the dry peppery finish.
Of the three new botanicals in this gin you’d think it would be fragrant mint that would dominate, but if anything, nutty floral notes standout. However, this is still recognisably Bombay Sapphire so it’s the brand’s trademark spiciness that prevails.
