Review and Tasting

Sampled on 17/10/2015

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Fragrant and spicy juniper. Pine, lavender, nutty angelica and black pepper with faint liquorice and orange zest. A splash of water amplifies the otherwise subdued citrus aromas.

Taste

Classic London dry styled juniper forward gin with underlying nutty angelica, coriander and enlivening peppery spice. Superbly clean.

Aftertaste

Refreshing piney spicy finish.

Overall

Simple, superbly clean, well-structured, juniper led and very classically London dry in style. Even at its generous 46.1% strength peppery spice notes are mellow. Tom Nichol may have retied but he’s still making great gin.
