Review and Tasting


Sampled on 02/02/2012

Appearance:

(batch No. 00-001, Bot No. 0855) Crystal clear. No colour from oak ageing.

Aroma:

Clean attractive and aromatic nose with generous pine forest-like juniper and fresh coriander.

Taste:

Reassuringly traditional, pine-fresh juniper and coriander palate with earthy parma violet (orris root?), liquorice and gentle dry spice.

Aftertaste:

Cleansing spice continues in the finish with lingering dry oaky bitterness.
