Review and Tasting


Sampled on 22/09/2020

Appearance:

[sample bottle 2018 vintage] Crystal clear (although light louche with water)

Aroma:

Pungent piney juniper with damp wood-like angelica and black pepper spice.

Taste:

Bang! Intense piney juniper with sage, hop-like bitterness and enlivening black pepper spice. Attractive fruitiness from the juniper.

Aftertaste:

Piney juniper fest continues through the long finish.

Overall:

Juniper Freak promises and delivers an intensely juniper gin. So concentrated are the flavoursome juniper oils in this 58% alc./vol. gin that when water (or tonic is added) those oils drop out of suspension to cloud the drink. Be warned, a little of this intensely flavoured gin goes a long way in a G&T to the extent that you may want to consider using half your usual measure of gin. That is unless you're a Juniper Freak.
