Phoebe Calver 9.0

Nose: Straight away you’re hit with light juniper notes, wrapped up in wild flowers. 

Palate: Sweet juniper first, that warms with every sip. The delicate wild flower notes have become quite heavily perfumed, but don’t overwhelm thanks to a dash of anise that gives a little spice. 

Finish: Despite all that happened on the palate, the finish is relatively delicate and rounds out with the spice of the aniseed. 

Comments: It really takes you on a journey. I’d love to try this out in a what I imagine would be a killer Negroni.

David T. Smith 9.2

Nose: Resinous and fresh aromas of juniper and pine. Earthy angelica intermingles with delightful cocoa. 

Palate: A refined spirit with a nuanced, but graceful character that gradually builds in complexity. Classic notes of juniper, coriander and angelica are accompanied by a leafy herbality. 

Finish: A finish of mint choc-chip ice cream and some little cinnamon doughnuts. 

Comments: Fun and flavoursome. I’d like to try it in a creamy cocktail such as a White Cargo or a refreshing Gin Alexander.
