David T. Smith

Nose
Bold, woody spice notes, sweet vanilla, cinnamon, tonka and toffee, along with more savoury notes of ginger, paprika, and cumin.

Palate
Initially woody, with notes of oily bark and cloves, as well as wintergreen and a touch of dandelion and burdock. Somewhat reminiscent of an apothecary’s store.

Finish
A tad thin, given the intensity and complexity of the rest of the gin.

Comments
A gin with a brilliant level of spiciness and a profile that will mix well with orange or ginger.

Score

8.4

Nose
Freshly buttered, lightly toasted white bread with blossom honey. Touches of lime and powdered ginger.

Palate
A lovely sweetness of honey and stem ginger cake matches with a classic gin botanical profile of juniper and woody spices too.

Finish
Notes of coriander and juniper win out in the drying, medium-length finish.

Comments
A gin with well-balanced sweetness that would work well paired with ginger ale and lime in a Gin Buck.

Score

8.2
