Review and Tasting

Sampled on 03/10/2017

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Zesty lime and orange citrus, pine fresh juniper, cracked black pepper, parma violets (orris root) and liquorice.

Taste

Dry piney juniper with pronounced cracked black pepper and cinnamon spice, sea salt, zesty citrus (surprising subdued compared to nose) and faint floral notes.

Aftertaste

Piney juniper and black pepper spiced finish.

Overall

Don’t be put off by the hop notes suggested in the name of what is actually a classically London dry styled gin. The headline Sussex hops are very subtle and beneficial in their influence. Dry pine fresh juniper leads with enlivening cracked black pepper spice.
