David T Smith – 8.0

Nose: Mellow, malty spice. Nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamom with milky tea and biscuits. 

Palate: Very silky and smooth, with cassia, cloves and anise. Spice moves onto fuller green notes; lemon myrtle and myrcene, and minty flavours.

Finish: Fresh peppermint with spruce and lingering black pepper and cubeb berries. 

Comments: Despite the mellow nose, it packs a punch. Mix with sweeter ingredients like fruit juice, as the gin’s character still comes through.

Felicity Murray – 7.8

Nose: Juniper comes to the fore with a big fruity hit, mixed with pungent, warming and robust spices – cinnamon, cardamom, cassia bark and nutmeg, with a touch of angelica. Rosemary and garden herbs.

Palate: A fresh fruity acidity cuts through an oily mouthfeel with subtle juniper and juicy berries emerging. 

Finish: Buttery and fruity but short-lived.

Comments: Newcomers should try this mixable spirit. Works with an elderflower tonic and a few berry summer fruits to garnish.
