Review and Tasting


Sampled on 02/05/2019

Appearance:

(sample bottle No. 0998) Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Piney juniper with zesty lime, green apple skin, cucumber, macadamia nut and white pepper. Cucumber is amplified with a splash of water.

Taste:

Freshening zesty lime and piney juniper with cucumber and light peppery spice. Velvety mouthfeel – especially with water.

Aftertaste:

Influence of lime and cucumber continue in the long finish.

Overall:

As you expect from a Portobello Road Gin, this limited Mark Knopfler edition is juniper-led and classic London dry in style but with subtle notes of lime and cucumber which make it fresh and summery.
