Dusky floral notes on the nose; delicate, but revealing themselves more and more as the gin opens up in the glass with hints of crisp citrus, too.
Warm citrus to start; juicy and jammy with a hint of creaminess. The middle of the palate is more typical with juniper and soft spice. A floral flourish leads back to lemon citrus flavours.
A clean finish with notes of mandarin before dry, floral notes of the jasmine.
Delicate, but with good flavour intensity. Would work well in a White Lady.
Intriguing. This is quite heavily perfumed.The floral notes are nicely tamed by a thin layer of crisp lemon.
That perfumed jasmine is quite all-encompassing at first sip, but the combination of citrus in there has stopped it becoming too much. This reminds me of a less zingy lemon posset covered in decorative petals, which leave a lingering floral hint.
Rounded out by the remaining jasmine.
Really well done and a very pleasing gin to drink.
