Review and Tasting

Sampled on 15/12/2016

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Cardamom, rooibos, truffle and aniseed with piney juniper. A splash of water amplifies cardamom spice.

Taste

Assertive cardamom and aniseed are tamed by rooibos. Subdued piney juniper and coriander.

Aftertaste

Cardamom and black pepper spice with aniseed, juniper and rooibos.

Overall

Kalahari truffle is the headline botanical in this South African gin but this is overwhelmed by cardamom and aniseed spice. Pleasing notes of rooibos help pull this very distinctly South African gin together.
