Price per bottle: £21-40 (US$27-53)
David T. Smith – 8.3
Nose: A floral nose reminiscent of a spring meadow evoking memories of fine weather and sunshine. Lemongrass and sweet dill follow.
Palate: An oily texture with the sweet, floral notes of lavender, that works especially well with juniper. All overlaid with a combination of sweet and savoury spice.
Finish: Juniper and a gentle, floral sweetness, accompanied by oily citrus notes.
Comments: Intense.Would mix well; especially in a White Lady or Aviation.
Felicity Murray – 8.4
Nose: Beautiful bunch of mixed fresh English garden herbs with powerful floral and a hint of ground spice.
Palate: Rich, oily and rounded – juicy mouthful with African violets, and sherbet lemon, summer berries with a herbal edge.
Finish: Coats the mouth and stays long and perfumed.
Comments: Different with the juniper overpowered by floral and fruity flavours. Mix with light tonic and garnish with rose petals and berries. Or peel a rhubarb stick to create crimson ribbons that swirl inside of the glass.
