Review and Tasting


Sampled on 23/06/2017

Appearance:

Hazy, brick red.

Aroma:

Wonderfully aromatic. Like walking into a gin distillery's botanical store with pronounced juniper oils, burnt orange peel, herbal aromas, peppery spice and cassia.

Taste:

Enlivening spicy, herbal, fruity palate with strong piney juniper, invigorating cracked black pepper and clove spice, Lemon Verbena, zesty marmalade and tannic Earl Grey tea.

Aftertaste:

Long spicy finish with scorched oak and lingering cracked pepper spice.

Overall:

Spicy, fruity and with a decent alc./vol., this is the summer cup that rescued and reinvigorated the category.
