David T. Smith

Nose
Floral notes of green tea and orange blossom along with aromas of orange
peel, giving this an intriguing combination of both sweetness
and bitterness.

Palate
On the palate, there are notes of cherry fruit and rose, along with rosehip, a hint of piney juniper,  almost jelly-like fruity notes, and coriander.

Finish
The coriander continues onto the finish, which is oily and resinous, leaving a real tingle on the tongue.

Comments

A fruity little number that
could be well utilised
in an Aviation.

Nose
Orange, dried fruits, festive spices – ginger, cloves, cassia – and caramel sweetness, backed up by juniper and coriander.

Palate
A pastry-like sweetness creates the impression of mince pies with orange and spice notes, studded with juniper berries. Clean texture.

Finish
Clove and liquorice with crisp juniper and a touch of vanilla. Medium to long length here.

Comments
It really lives up to its contemporary name – a pleasure to sip neat, or would also make a cracking Martinez.

8.7
