David T Smith – 8.7

Nose: Soft and elegant with wisps of spice – cassia and nutmeg – and just a hint of chocolate orange.

Palate: A superb texture, that is thick and coats the mouth. Notes of cinnamon are accompanied by menthol pepper and bright citrus, which adds balance.

Finish: Dry and crisp, with juniper, angelica, and a residual sparkle of citrus.

Comments: A well-balanced gin with good complexity, well-suited to a host of mixed drinks.

Felicity Murray – 8.8

Nose: Clean, fresh and balanced with citrus fruits – oranges and grapefruit – plus pine needles, lemongrass and a hint of honeysuckle.

Palate: A fairly complex and refreshing mouthful of fresh, crisp fruit salad. Citrus fruits are still at the fore, topped with a pleasant, tingling peppery warmth.

Finish: All of the above lingers in balance.

Comments: This would make a refreshing G&T (with plain or flavoured tonic) and work equally well in a classic Dry Martini.
