David T. Smith – 7.5 

Nose: Soft baking spice – cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, along with a little saffron. Somewhat reminiscent of Simnel and spiced fruit cake.

Palate: A mellow spirit with plenty of spice, backed up with warm orange. The juniper is restrained, but comes through with a little pine towards the end. 

Finish: Bitter orange and black pepper that lingers on and on and on.

Comments: A botanically punchy gin that will stand up well to heavy mixing; it’d make a good Negroni.

Felicity Murray – 8.7 

Nose: Delicate balance of juniper with a little lavender, a touch of coriander seed and bountiful apples, pears and oranges. 

Palate: A full and juicy mouthfeel that’s smooth and rounded with juniper, citrus and flowers, before spicy and leafy notes emerging. Balanced and satisfying. 

Finish: Long and lingering, zesty and fresh, with citrus and a hint of black pepper.

Comments: Typical London Dry style that will go well in a traditional dry martini or G&T in a bowl glass loaded with ice.
