David T. Smith

Nose
Delightfully bright; the citrus notes simply shine, with added complexity from ginger spice. Thoroughly inviting.

Palate
Soft and succulent, with a wide array of citrus flavours: from lemon to yuzu, orange to lime, and all exceptionally juicy. Notes of green pine and menthol come through, along with a little chocolate.

Finish
Warm menthol pepper helps to round out the gin’s overall flavour profile.

Comments
A cracking gin with a fun character;  delicious with tonic and plenty of ice.

Score

9.0

Nose
A strong stalky vegetal note that verges on boot polish, then turns into spiced parsnip and swede mash. Bright, fresh lemon peel.

Palate
Citrussy coriander with slight lemon sherbet notes, resinous juniper and another sweet vegetal hit. The texture is interesting, a bit viscous too.

Finish
Short in length with final coriander and lemon notes.

Comments
With its slightly sour lemon character, perhaps this would work served in a slightly sweeter Tom Collins cocktail.

Score

8.0
