David T Smith – 8.2 

Nose: Gentle spice on the nose, accompanied by juniper, coriander and vanilla. 

Palate: The impact of the barrel is gentle and light; initial flavours of a classic London Dry develop, followed by oak, vanilla, and a gentle spice.

Finish: Zesty coriander and citrus with a hint of oiliness that lingers on the palate.

Comments: A fine example of a lightly rested, rather than an aged, gin that would be great in a Gin and Tonic or Martini. 

Felicity Murray – 8.5 

Nose: Juniper and herbal notes cut through the nutty and vanilla aromas. Pine and bay leaves mingle with hazelnut and honeysuckle. Orange marmalade notes linger.

Palate: Subtle and delicate mix of spicy, herbal and sweet citrus flavours with a touch of honey.   

Finish: Bittersweet, but then a warm honeyed Seville orange softness fills the mouth.

Comments: A nicely balanced, warming and citrusy sweet gin to sip neat, with or without ice, and a perfect partner for a Negroni.
