Los Alcores de Carmona
Price per bottle: ££
Sam Coyne – 8.5
Nose: Summer strawberries coated in cream. Vanilla. There’s a faint waft of earthy juniper in there too.
Palate: Straight at you with strawberries, raspberries and a hint of vanilla cream. Mouthfeel is light. Towards the end it becomes a little more bitter and dry with the hint of green tea.
Finish: Drawn out, with a little more citrus than the palate.
Comments: Sets its stall out early doors as a fruit forward gin and duly delivers. Has a nice balance to it.
David T. Smith – 8.0
Nose: Soft, fruity berry notes with a little sweetness and creamy vanilla, hints of orange and earthiness.
Palate: Rich in texture and pleasantly smooth, this has an initial creamy note that makes way for plump notes of strawberry and raspberry. Any sweetness is balanced by a light, dry note.
Finish: Earthy with a little florality, joined by an orange zestiness and a touch of pepper.
Comments: A soft and fruity gin with a creaminess and a balanced sweetness; brilliant mixed with lemon tonic.
