David T. Smith

Nose
Delightful orange notes: rich and indulgent with additional aromas of cocoa nibs that leave an overall impression of chocolate orange.

Palate
A medley of citrus: from zesty lemon to warm orange and the zing of lime. This is followed by a buttery nuttiness and some malty, bready tones.

Finish
Earthy cocoa notes on the finish, reminiscent of dark chocolate; dry, with a tiny hint of bitterness.

Comments
A finely made gin with a solid dose of juniper and bright citrus; it would work well in a Negroni.

Score

8.0

Nose
Fragrant orange and a herbaceous note. Spicy, slightly aniseed freshness, like cracked cardamom pods. 

Palate
Grain sweetness with cardamom and coriander spice notes, lifted by zesty citrus. Oily juniper notes lend to the texture.

Finish
A fresh burst of orange and pine alongside some drying warmth. It has nice length to it.

Comments
A pleasantly flavoured contemporary gin that bears its ABV well. The spice and orange characteristics would sit nicely in a Negroni.

Score

8.4
