Wonderfully aromatic and floral with pungent cracked black pepper spice. Complex scents of parma violet, lavender, camphor, balsa wood-like orris root and freshly cut celery (turns stewed vegetal is left for a prolonged period in the glass).
Clean and crisp with zesty citrus, lemongrass, juniper and zingy cracked black pepper. Silky mouthfeel despite the peppery bite which dominates the palate.
Long, lingering lemongrass, black pepper and lavender influenced juniper.
