Nose
Strong juniper on the nose along with leafy, green notes and a touch of citrus.

Palate
Oily in character with a good level of intensity and flavours of earthy angelica, zesty citrus, and light pine, before lingering notes of sweet lemon and a little peppery warmth.

Finish
The citrus notes continue onto the finish, along with that peppery warmth from the palate, before getting increasingly dry.

Comments
A clean gin, although a touch peppery – it would do well in savoury drinks.

Score

8.4

Nose
Quite heavy, oily juniper notes, along with a little peppery spice, spritzy citrus and a smoky hint.

Palate
It’s very fresh and light on the palate. That pepper spice has evolved into coriander and maybe a touch of mace, with more lemon peel notes. The piney juniper notes are still quite heavy.

Finish
Dry spice and juniper hang on into the finish.

Comments
A good, solid, classic-tasting gin. It would make a good match for a premium tonic water, lots of ice and a light citrus garnish.

Score

7.9
