Review and Tasting

Sampled on 01/12/2014

Appearance

(sample dated 01/Oct/14) Crystal clear.

Aroma

Eucalyptus and piney juniper, nutty angelica root and fragrant fresh coriander/flat leaf parsley leaves. Rosemary notes are subdued but detectable with citrus lemon zest. There is a fruitiness reminiscent of gooseberry and green apple.

Taste

Superbly clean with powerful pine and eucalyptus juniper. Angelica and fragrant coriander are the most obvious of the supporting botanicals with good liquorice notes and assertive cracked black pepper.

Aftertaste

More pine and eucalyptus on the long finish with lingering liquorice and root notes freshened with more fresh coriander leaf.

Overall

Bone dry and distinctly juniper led with leaf and black pepper spice.
