David T. Smith

Nose
A crisp nose with earthy spice
and juniper: clean and classic.

Palate
This gin has an elegant intensity: there is a little salinity to the mouthfeel, but it’s not too oily, with notes of citrus and coriander and a decidedly chocolatey character.

Finish
Quite creamy on the finish, with a note of green juniper and lingering pepper with a lovely, gentle warmth.

Comments
A great example of a classic London Dry; a good all-rounder for a gin and tonic, Negronis and Martinis.

Score

8.1

Nose
Aroma is botanically intense and oily. Notes of juniper, orange citrus, and earthy tones of cinnamon and a pinch of coriander.

Palate
It has a lick of heat and a slightly waxy texture. Good juniper notes with zesty citrus peels, and spice and sweetness from cinnamon and liquorice.

Finish
It leaves you with some lingering juniper and citrus around the mouth.

Comments
A lovely classic character and nice spicy warmth. I can see it making a great Negroni.

Score

8.5
