Review and Tasting

Sampled on 16/11/2015

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

pungent, resiny piney juniper and eucalyptus with subtle parma violet, heather, candied ginger and sage.

Taste

Dry juniper with sappy pine dominating but with an integrated herbal complexity and faint liquorice sweetness.

Aftertaste

Junipery pine dominance continues in the clean finish with faint lingering parma violet, liquorice and black pepper.

Overall

An "Islay Dry Gin" might suggest something peat influenced but The Botanist is superbly clean and juniper led, and while it features "22 native Islay botanicals," The Botanist is distinctly London dry in style.
