Review and Tasting


Sampled on 11/12/2016

Appearance:

(sample bottle 2016/4, bottle No. 9732) Hazy, pale scarlet red.

Aroma:

Eucalyptus, freshly sawn spruce, redcurrant, sloe berries, black pepper and toasted nuts.

Taste:

Beautifully balanced spice, berry fruit, spruce wood and sweetness. Attractive earthiness.

Aftertaste:

Long spicy woody finish with redcurrant and sloe berry fruitiness.

Overall:

Distinctly drier and spicier than classic sloe gins with pronounced freshly sawn spruce woodiness.
