Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/06/2017

Appearance

Hazy, brick red.

Aroma

Wonderfully aromatic. Like walking into a gin distillery's botanical store with pronounced juniper oils, burnt orange peel, herbal aromas, peppery spice and cassia.

Taste

Enlivening spicy, herbal, fruity palate with strong piney juniper, invigorating cracked black pepper and clove spice, Lemon Verbena, zesty marmalade and tannic Earl Grey tea.

Aftertaste

Long spicy finish with scorched oak and lingering cracked pepper spice.

Overall

Spicy, fruity and with a decent alc./vol., this is the summer cup that rescued and reinvigorated the category.
