Rich and bold with plenty to explore: there is wood, spice and citrus, as well as bright tannins and red wine, berry-like aromas.
Delicate, piney sweetness makes way for a touch of sherry wine and then drier, tannic red wine notes. These are supported by citrus and sweeter, spiced flavours.
One final burst of juniper, before a floral finish with lingering, dry cedar.
A textbook example of a matured gin: the wood and botanicals are well-balanced, making it exceptionally sippable.
Big oaky notes of vanilla and caramel. Baking spices and sponge cake. A herbal note like caraway seed, touches of apricot, banana and melon, and a pinch of juniper and lemon peel.
Baked apricots, blackcurrants, vanilla, dark caramel, and a herbal, grassy note.
Mid-length with a continuing ‘green’ note, a little creamy oaky sweetness and more blackcurrant.
I found the flavour of this delightful. I think it would make a lovely Martinez.
