Fresh and clean. Piney, camphor, eucalyptus and faint overripe banana juniper notes with aromatic coriander seed, delicate Satsuma orange and lemon zest, and hop-like angelica. Subtle but enlivening spice with fragrant parma violets floral scents.
Clean with a surprisingly soft mouthfeel - especially considering the high alc./vol.. Juniper to the fore with liquorice and good supporting angelica and coriander. Distinct floral character with underlying rootyness, invigorating spice and zesty citrus. Harmonious and well-balanced.
Parma violet notes linger with pine and peppery spice.
Closure: Synthetic stopper
