David T Smith – 8.9
Nose: Light citrus, followed by a savoury aroma.
Taste: A floral palate with herbaceous and aromatic rosemary. The flavours are rich and plump with a jelly-like sweetness and hints of coriander and orange, too.
Finish: Sweet, sappy pine and a continuation of the beautiful rosemary note: aromatic and intense.
Comments: A great, fragrant gin that really stands out. Superb in a Dirty Martini or with a herbal tonic water and maybe even a Red Snapper.
Felicity Murray – 9.0
Nose: A heady mix of culinary herbs, such as marjoram, oregano and thyme mixed with summer flowers, including chamomile and elderflower. Nicely balanced by a base of citrus fruit.
Palate: These floral and citrus notes unexpectedly fade away in favour of sweeter, spicy and earthy flavours such as angelica and cinnamon.
Finish: Long and juicy with a bite of tannin.
Comments: A surprising and very interestingly complex and richly flavoured gin that will bring a light tonic to life.
