David T. Smith – 6.8

Nose: Bold, creamy vanilla and green leafiness of spearmint. Crisp apple.

Palate: A very creamy and bold gin. The mint mixes with light notes of menthol pepper and green, oily juniper notes are combined with a damp earthiness.

Finish: More menthol is accompanied by a tingle from the alcohol, but sadly, the finish is a bit shorter than I’d like. 

Comments: An interesting and unique gin with good interplay between bitter and sweet. Suited to drinks that work with a more contemporary style of gin.

Felicity Murray – 8.9

Nose: Hugely herbal and earthy. Juniper is very evident along with a cacophony of rich warm spices and aromatic herbs, along with a backing of citrus.

Palate: Bittersweet citrus notes now kick in, balancing nicely with the juniper, rosemary, ginger and cumin.

Finish: Long and dry with plenty of peppery spice and citric sparkle.

Comments: Being crammed full of traditional gin botanicals and having a high ABV, it certainly hits the mark and is spot on for mixing with a classic or aromatic tonic water.
