David T. Smith

Nose
Lovely, lively citrus on the nose: plump and succulent with delicate floral aromas to it.

Palate
Soft in texture with lots of flavour: exotic, leafy notes, great complexity, and a juicy fruitiness, all followed by more classic sappy juniper and some spice. A lovely example of a gin that embraces South African Fynbos flavours.

Finish
A clean finish with touches of menthol pepper and oily citrus.

Comments
An intense and flavoursome gin with plenty to explore and enjoy.

Score

9.3

Nose
Strong red hedgerow fruits and freshly grated orange zest. A touch of fruity tea tannins and aniseed herbs. Earthy notes come with time.

Palate
Light black tea leaf, liquorice, waxy juniper and ground coriander. Stewed, slightly pithy orange.

Finish
It’s quite short, with more tannins, juicy citrus and a pleasant warmth to it.

Comments
I would have liked a bit more body in the texture, but the flavours were delightful. A floral tonic could pair well.

Score

8.6
