David T. Smith – 7.6
Nose: Vegetal and slightly green with notes of celery stalk and fresh leaves, with coriander and lemon in the background.
Palate: The gin has a soft and elegant mouthfeel with an initial earthy, sweet flavour of liquorice root followed by soft spice and lemon thyme.
Finish: Sweet, lingering spice with some butteriness and, at the end, notes of violet.
Comments: A soft and subtle gin that is easy to sip and would make a lovely Dry Martini with a lemon twist.
Felicity Murray – 7.8
Nose: Spicy notes of ginger, anise and cumin and a dusting of angelica, underlying subtle aromas of citrus fruits and fresh mixed herbs. Delicate and complex.
Palate: Quite dry and crisp with traces of mixed spice, pepper, lemon zest, apples
Finish: Custard cream tart and a little lemon barley linger, but only for a short while.
Comments: The subtle flavours of this gin would make it a good choice for a newcomer to gin and G&Ts. It would also work well in an Aviation cocktail.
