David T. Smith – 8.1 

Nose: Indulgent, sweet baking spice – cassia, nutmeg and ginger. Overall, the impression given is that of an iced gingerbread man.

Palate: Dry citrus to start, combined with coriander seed, before booming spice, which is both comforting and inviting. 

Finish: A spicy finish of red cinnamon and a light, woody pepper.

Comments: An exceptionally spicy gin; sweet and accessible, it would mix well with ginger ale or in an Old Fashioned or Gin Toddy.

Felicity Murray – 8.0 

Nose: Tropical fruits with rich fruitcake aromas of sultanas, almonds, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cardamom and cloves.

Palate: Follows on from the nose – big and bold, creamy, juicy and hugely spicy with cinnamon and sweet Italian panettone cake.

Finish: Very long and satisfying, warm, sweet and buttery with all the flavours lingering.

Comments: ‘Love ‘em or hate ‘em’ spices.  Garnish a G&T with a complimentary cinnamon stick or balance the mix with slice of orange.
