David T. Smith

Nose
Creamy, confectionary vanilla followed by cherry and raspberry and the nuttiness of damson.

Palate
A light, syrupy and fruity nature with the sweetness of candied cherries and raspberry jam. There’s a little botanical complexity, but the gin character is rather restrained.

Finish
Some nutty notes of almond and cherry stone.

Comments
A sippable spirit that is somewhat liqueur-like, but a tad dryer. It would mix well with bitter lemon for
a variation on a Long Pedlar.

Score

7.3

Nose
 It smells syrupy, with sweet raspberry, plums, peaches, and and a touch of orange.

Palate
Cough sweets, sugared raspberries and a touch of just-ripe plum flesh. It’s almost liqueur-like in its sweetness, but not as syrupy in texture as the nose suggested.

Finish
Sweet red fruits and a slight earthy pine note see this out.

Comments
A pleasant flavoured gin that would make a lovely drink with sparkling wine (think Kir Royale). Not much gin character to speak of, though.

Score

7.7
