Review and Tasting


Sampled on 04/02/2019

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Subtle thistle and green grass, pungent piney juniper, light balsawood angelica root, hop-like celery (perhaps angelica seed?) and faint parma violet black tea orris root.

Taste:

Superbly clean with classic London dry notes but with faint blackcurrant fruit sweetness and subtle asparagus.

Aftertaste:

Dry, cleansing cracked black pepper piney finish with faint liquorice.

Overall:

Bone dry and classic London dry in style. Citrus is dialled right back but is replaced by subtle fruity, floral and green notes.
