Review and Tasting

Sampled on 27/02/2012

Appearance

(bottle No. 358) Crystal clear.

Aroma

Elegant and floral with junipery lavender and camphor. Generous use of orris root imparts its characteristic parma violet and clean hamster cage while citrus aromas are subdued.

Taste

Juniper is centre stage but not screaming, while citrus is way down the billing. As London gins go, Portobello is on the spicy side, but it's a 'warm interest adding', rather than a 'hot pepper' spice, with nutmeg and cinnamon (from cassia bark) with savoury celery-like notes (angelica root).

Aftertaste

Lingering liquorice and nutmeg finish.
