Phoebe Calver 8.9

Nose: There’s quite a lot going on here. The juniper sings out as a soloist among the choir, surrounded by the florality of lavender and a little dry spice.

Palate: This really is very smooth. The floral has become a little fruitier, we’re moving on to light berries, herbaceous juniper and some zest which offsets that spice.

Finish: Smooth, with creamy vanilla that’s decided to say hello.

Comments: Takes you on a journey. It’s been beautifully crafted to create something to intrigue and surprise you at every turn.

Nose: Notably clean and classic with strong juniper and green pine forest notes and a flash of grapefruit peel.

Palate: An excellent, super-smooth texture. A wide array of juniper characteristics from oily berries to woody cedar and even some floral pine blossom. A little sweetness unfolds over time along with rose, white chocolate and clotted cream.

Finish: Dry with lingering notes of lemon and grapefruit.

Comments: A superb gin, well balanced and cleanly made with both character and versatility.
