Nose
Citrus shines from the outset: lemon and lime with a leafy spiciness. Summery, but with a pleasant intensity to it.

Palate
The alcohol is well-integrated with only a little warmth at the end. The texture sits nicely on the tongue. Notes of angelica and liquorice are joined by peppery citrus and lingering resinous juniper.

Finish
Menthol pepper lingers on the finish, along with a gentle lift of sweetness.

Comments
A good all-rounder that would sit nicely in a G&T, Martini, or Negroni.

Score

8.0

Nose
Pepper and mint chocolate. Juicy citrus, along with an oiliness of peels. Juniper and a warming, dusky spice. A fruity hint of fig.

Palate
Creamy milk chocolate and juicy lemon with coriander, punchy juniper and a little sweet baking spice note, like spiced shortbread. A little oiliness in the texture.

Finish
Gets more savoury with spicy coriander, pepper and a touch of sage. Lovely, lengthy and drying.

Comments
A well-made spirit with a very enjoyable evolution of flavours. A Martini is calling.

Score

8.6
