Sam Coyne – 7.9 

Nose: A woodland treat. So earthy and green with lots of piney juniper coming through.

Palate: A light mouthfeel, initially piney juniper, but develops into citrus. Green notes of angelica soon follow.

Finish: A straight-forward earthy and green finish.

Comments: Just quietly straight forward stuff – if you enjoy your gin green and classic, this is one for you.

David T. Smith – 8.2

Nose: Lots of woody pine and juniper; reminiscent of an evergreen forest with sappy wood and even a hint of smoke.

Palate: Lots of juniper, accompanied by some minerality and citrus, especially lime. More earthiness follows with angelica and the sweetness of liquorice.

Finish: A crisp, clean finish with a gentle warmth. There’s a final sparkle of juniper with notes of wood and pine needles.

Comments: A good choice for big fans of juniper – fitting for a classic gin.
