Zesty lime, grapefruit and orange with subdued piney juniper and black pepper.

Layers of sweet and bitter citrus fruit with light piney juniper, orange sherbet, nutty angelica root and black pepper spice.

Sherbety zesty lemon and orange, piney juniper and white pepper.

Overall

This gin may be Japanese, but it is distinctly new western in style (with subdued juniper) and zesty sherbety citrus to the fore.
