Sam Coyne – 8.8 

Nose: Forward with vanilla and cinnamon. Perhaps one for the whisky lovers?

Palate: PUNCHY. Welcome to spice; vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and the faint sweetness of ginger. Bourbon-gin. The vanilla/juniper hybrid isn’t exactly shy. Honey barley notes then smooth out the edges. 

Finish: Long and spicy – as you’d expect from something that’s spent some time in a cask.

Comments: This could really grow on you. For its style, this is some good stuff. Makes an excellent Gin Old Fashioned.

David T. Smith – 9.2

Nose: Soft, aromatic woody notes: oak and spice with pine and juniper, too. Wonderfully inviting.

Palate: Bright gold in colour, with an amazing mouthfeel – thick and luxurious. Initial notes of Crêpes Suzette make way for mellow wood, toffee, and chocolate.

Finish: Botanical notes of citrus and juniper reappear and linger for a long and interesting finish.

Comments: A well balanced product with the wood and botanicals in harmony. A lovely choice to sip on-the-rocks or in a Negroni.
