David T. Smith – 9.0
Nose: A dazzling sparkle of citrus, both lemon and lime, along with a gentle note of vanilla.
Palate: An exceptionally elegant and balanced spirit, evidently well-made. A medley of citrus notes to start, followed by green juniper and earthy angelica.
Finish: Orange and chamomile with a flash of spice and pepper.
Comments: A fresh and exciting gin with a pleasant character and great mixing potential. An obvious choice for a Gin Tonic.
Felicity Murray – 9.1
Nose: A subtle but complex blend of ripe citrus fruits and honeysuckle, pine needles and fresh garden herbs.
Palate: Wonderfully buttery smooth with a refreshing hit of freshly squeezed lemons. Well rounded and luscious.
Finish: Long and clean. Comfortingly fresh and heart warming like lemon drizzle cake.
Comments: The fresh lemony flavours of this gin make it perfect for a classic dry martini or G&T with ice and a wedge of lemon. Try cutting and placing a few decorative rings of lemon peel in the glass.
