David T Smith – 8.6
Nose: Fragrant and vivacious on the nose with bright lemon, sweet anise and a gentle, green leafiness.
Taste: Very zesty to start: a mix of lemon and orange zest makes this crisp, but with a nice marmalade sweetness, too.
Finish: More citrus on the finish, but the flavours move towards the more floral aspects of mandarin and satsuma.
Comments: Bright and fruity – a lovely choice for a Martini or a White Lady.
Felicity Murray – 8.9
Nose: Strong and hugely herbal with fresh citrus fruits. Chamomile, jasmine, lavender, parsley and coriander seed mingle with oranges and peaches.
Palate: A powerful and rich combination of all the above flavours.
Finish: The stone fruits and citrus notes overlay a spicy base of nutmeg, ginger and five spice. Long and rich.
Comments: Perfect for a White Lady cocktail (30ml Cointreau, 50ml gin and 20ml lemon juice – one egg white optional) garnished with a lemon twist.
