Nose
An initial smokiness is mixed with aromas of toasted brown sugar and sappy juniper.

Palate
For an Old Tom Gin, it has a good level of sweetness and the intensity of flavour is just what you’d expect. Juniper notes, sweet, woody baking spice, and the refreshing citrus of cracked coriander seed.

Finish
Clean, with crisp juniper and a crumble of ginger cookies.

Comments
A fine example of an Old Tom Gin with the added flair of the smoke on the nose; a fine choice for a Tuxedo cocktail.

Score

8.6

Nose
Honeyed meadowsweet notes with a little florality, like orange blossom. A hint of lime, juniper and nutmeg. Toasted oats come later.

Palate
Sweet honey notes with a touch of aniseed. Resinous pine, earthy angelica and slightly pithy citrus. It’s a little tingly.

Finish
Warm and drying, with decent length. It leaves behind sweetness like whisky-spiked orange marmalade. 

Comments
A solid Old Tom with good botanical character to be found – a lovely fit for a classic Collins.

Score

8.5
