Nose
A light nose, but perhaps it is a little more closed because of the higher ABV: faint wisps of juniper, lemon, and orris.

Palate
Full of flavour with coriander and spicy cassia bark. It’s an oily gin with a texture that coats the mouth and tongue. It’s also on the spicy side, backed up by citrus, but the balance is good and, overall, the spirit has a pleasant plumpness.

Finish
Bready notes come through, as well as sweet spice.

Comments
A oily, well-made gin that would pair well with ginger ale in a Gin Buck.

Score

8.3

Nose
Quite shy at first, but with time, juniper and powdered spice notes emerge alongside a little citrus peel. A slight woody, savoury note in the back, like truffle.

Palate
Very, very light umami mushroom at first, then glacé cherry, orange, angelica, and slightly oily juniper, accompanied by caramel milk chocolate.

Finish
Leaves a drying warmth with notes of juniper, orange oil and faint milk chocolate.

Comments
The sweetness in this gin could work in a creamy cocktail, such as an Alexander.

Score

8.1
