David T. Smith

Nose
Notably classic in style, this has lots of juniper, angelica, coriander and citrus.

Palate
An array of spiciness upfront, along with the sweetness of anise and gingerbread, highlighted by notes of cinnamon and cassia. Unexpected, but lovely notes of lemon shortbread and pepper spice then develop.

Finish
Sweet floral and fruity notes of violets and a lovely earthiness, with a sparkle of pine and a gentle warmth.

Comments
Plenty going on and good alcohol integration; perfect for a powerful gin and tonic.

Score

8.4

Nose
Zingy orange zest, juniper, and
a hit of warming spice, like a botanical ginger beer. Touch of woody sweetness.

Palate
More sweet orange, with ginger nut biscuits, liquorice and a leafy tarragon note. Good juniper character, with a slight hint of crayon to it.

Finish
A warm, spicy tingle with more green hints of pine and anise-like herbs.

Comments
It wears its strength very lightly. It would make a mighty fine Negroni with those spicy and woody notes, but proceed with caution here!

Score

8.8
