Review and Tasting

Sampled on 22/07/2012

Appearance

Clear, transparent.

Aroma

Subdued, subtle juniper and green tea with faint cedar and nuts.

Taste

Not as flavourful as some other jonge jenevers, Olifant’s palate features cedary, nutty notes, alongside juniper, black olives, green tea and spice.

Aftertaste

Slight oily and nutty with lingering pine-ey juniper and spice.
