Waxed lemon peels. Watermelon perhaps? Something lightly fruity. Herbaceous, with a touch of sage.
Warming floral notes, poppy perhaps or lavender maybe. A classy juniper spine. The early citrus note of the nose makes an appearance. Flavours are confident.
Lemon is pronounced on the finish, which is lasting. More herbal
Manages to successfully go for crisp sweetness to earthy in one swoop. Easy drinking.
Is that cucumber, it’s fresh, light and fruity from the off. A little lemon spritz keeps that freshness going.
Follows on from the nose quite unexpectedly, hitting you with a herby wall of sage, like you’re munching on a leaf, before the freshness of the cucumber and zing of lemon remains.
Long and zesty.
This could be pretty refreshing with a bit of elderflower cordial and tonic water, maybe a bit lethally drinkable in the end.
