Review and Tasting

Sampled on 22/03/2017

Appearance

(sample bottle No. 0063) Crystal clear.

Aroma

Zesty orange, dried mango and ripe peach fruit with pine-fresh juniper, herbal and spice complexity. Attractive floral notes are amplified with water.

Taste

Initial soft, almost creamy mouthfeel cut by zesty orange citrus bite and peppery spice. Pronounced piney juniper and grassy notes (shiso and dill perhaps). Very clean and bone dry.

Aftertaste

Fades with more zesty orange and lingering citrus oils, floral and basil herbal notes.

Overall

This is a big gin, bursting with bergamot freshness, timut pepper spice and subtler grassy and floral notes. These flavours – particularly bergamot explode in a G&T.
