David T. Smith8.4 

Nose: Bright, resinous pine; deep and luscious, like the thick canopy of an Alpine forest. Subtle lifts of lemon peel.

Palate: Oily mouthfeel with the spicy citrus of coriander upfront and a good dose of linalool. Lemon crème brûlée, before dry, woody juniper.

Finish: Medium length with black pepper and freshly-split cedar wood.

Comments: A slightly oily gin that leads with wood spice and a splash of citrus. Good mixing potential.

Felicity Murray8.7 

Nose: Citrus peel and juniper balanced with warm spices, including coriander and cinnamon, and hints of lavender and thyme.

Palate: Rich, fresh and full bodied. The traditional botanicals shine, with juicy fruits at first, followed by a warm spiciness with a bittersweet edge.

Finish: Long, dry and lemony. Juniper lingers on liquorice sweetness.

Comments: A nicely balanced, traditional style gin that deserves to be drunk in a classic dry martini or with a naturally light tonic water. Simply garnish with a twist of lemon peel.
