Sam Coyne – 7.5
Nose: A burst of juniper. Herbal with a little spice harbouring in the background.
Palate: Lighter than the nose. The juniper is the introductory note, before a tropical fruitiness. Citrus. Is that cracked black pepper? Flavoursome, yet some of the softer notes are lost in the punch of sweet fruit. Excellent notes among some that need developing.
Finish: Long, with the herbal juniper.
Comments: Might be even better if the nuances were accentuated. Easy enough, but maybe lacks a clear direction.
Phoebe Calver – 7.2
Nose: Like walking into the bathroom after you’ve gone to town on the mouthwash, so fresh with a bundle of citrus and spice waiting to be seen.
Taste: Freshness is still there making it nice and crisp. I feel a little bit like I just popped a tiny mint. Sugary sweetness follows and a little nutty edge.
Finish: The lemon taste lingers on a long finish.
Comments: A refreshing and relatively zesty gin that maybe lacks a little punch.
