David T. Smith – 8.8
Nose: A beautiful and elegant nose – inviting and complex with juicy juniper, soft berry notes and warm spice.
Palate: Delightful mouthful – thick and really coats the tongue. Good, strong juniper combined with plump berry notes and spicy coriander. Superb balance and super smooth.
Finish: A little resinous with a touch of violet, before a lingering citrus spiciness and a pinch of pepper.
Comments: A fantastic gin with a harmonious array of flavour that is extremely sippable.
Felicity Murray – 8.6
Nose: Complex with juniper and warm spices at first – nutmeg, coriander seed, cinnamon and vanilla – with orange peel and honeysuckle coming through along with herbal notes of sage, basil and mint.
Palate: Big oily mouthfeel with zingy citrus freshness. Its high ABV brings out the flavours without too much burn.
Finish: Full, rounded and slightly oily finish with all the traditional gin flavours lingering.
Comments: Could be sipped or in a Negroni. A well-balanced and adaptable gin.
