Review and Tasting


Sampled on 04/06/2017

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Citrusy and floral with pine-fresh juniper and black pepper spice. It may be the power of suggestion, but there's also faint ripe red apple.

Taste:

Fresh, superbly clean and balanced with piney juniper, zesty citrus, mild black pepper spice, light fruitiness and faint floral notes. Almost creamy, rounded mouthfeel.

Aftertaste:

Long, cleansing, lightly spiced piney juniper finish which fades with cracked black pepper spice. Very faint chocolate powder note.

Overall:

Pronounced piney juniper - as you'd expect from a proper gin, with floral complexity and a rounded mouthfeel.
