Sam Coyne – 8.0

Nose: A herbal opening, with coriander, earthy juniper and a little elderflower. 

Palate: Juniper is much brighter on the palate and cuts through the herbs. Aniseed and star anise brings dials down the juniper. 

Finish: Middling length, the satisfying mouthfeel leaves a waxy citrus note. 

Comments: Balance of flavours is admirable – sweet to savoury. Good classic notes. Looking forward to trying with an elderflower tonic to see if it enhances the note that was found on the nose.

Phoebe Calver – 8.0

Nose: That nose is dreamy, like you’ve just taken a big old breath of fresh spring air… minus the hay fever. Strong sage pushing through, with a little sweetness at the end.

Taste: The freshness is still there, grassy and lightly vegetal, with a little light berry fruitiness shining through. There is some aniseed there to give all that light air a bit of punch.

Finish: The aniseed spice stays with you.

Comments: Lulls you into a false sense of security, before hitting you with the big flavours. I like it.
