David T Smith – 8.6
Nose: Lovely, rich, and fruity with hints of cherry and peach. Sweet and inviting.
Palate: Great texture – thick and a little sweet. Big, bold juniper notes followed by citrus and pine blossom. Great balance between the botanicals and barrel.
Finish: A little honey along with spice and a little pepper. A long, lingering finish of cedar and citrus follows.
Comments: An intense and juniper-forward aged gin, that would be simply splendid in a Negroni.
Felicity Murray – 7.8
Nose: Shy at first, but opens up with wafts of sweet vanilla, bread and honey, chocolate, tangerines, cloves and baking spices.
Palate: Hot and spicy, rich and buttery with strong wood imparted flavours at first, then juniper and citrus emerges to add complexity and balance.
Finish: Creamy smooth with vanilla, lime and warm spices. Medium length.
Comments: The oak influence makes it a good replacement for rye whisky or Bourbon in Boulevardiers or Old Fashioneds.
