Rather creamy nose with woodiness, cinnamon, and cassia, as well as clove.
Very oily in texture, bold juniper, complex, and resinous. The juniper is complemented by spiced notes and the lightly sweet, floral flavour of violets.
Final notes of spicy and citrusy coriander and orange. The finish is very clean and long with a gentle warmth to it.
This is a classic and complex gin with a beautiful progression of flavour; this would make a first choice Martini.
Juniper, fresh lemon and dill. Bunches of lavender bring a floral note.
A rich and full-bodied spirit, with juniper a restrained accompaniment to plenty of citrus flavour. The lavender finds its way in, the early citrus dissipates, before spice comes through.
Long length, with the body of the citrus lasting well.
The sweet, robust body at the heart of this one is excellent. Citrus lies at the heart, and I would love to give this a go in a Martini.
