Review and Tasting

Sampled on 01/12/2014

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Pine and eucalyptus juniper with lime zest/lime cordial, floral cherry/honeysuckle blossom, celery-like and faint nutty angelica root notes.

Taste

Sake seems to soften this gin adding faint sweetness and body to its mouthfeel. Thankfully Jinzu is firmly grounded in the classic London dry style with piney juniper still the predominant flavour with invigorating kaffir lime-like citrus zest and a delicate floral influence.

Aftertaste

Cleansing, sake, lime zest and juniper finish.

Overall

Back in the vodka boom I remember Wokka Sake vodka and now we are in the gin boom I feared East would dominate rather that meet West in this gin. However, Jinzu is a well-conceived and brilliantly executed riff on a classic London dry with juniper rightly to the fore.
