A gentle nose with only a touch of spirit – surprising given the high ABV – but there are discernible aromas of juniper, citrus, and spice.
Deceptively sippable; the alcohol is incredibly well-integrated. Oily juniper and biscuity coriander seed make way for exotic ginger spice and cardamom, along with cassia and cinnamon.
More spice with a gradually building alcohol warmth.
The ABV makes applications more challenging, but this is undoubtedly a very well-made gin.
Distinctly coastal at first with notes of plump prawns and seaweed, then freshly shaved wood, spicy coriander, bright juniper and a touch of oregano.
Honeyed notes with aniseed herbs and menthol. Orange peel, resinous juniper and woody notes.
An alcohol heat crescendo with
a little drying woodiness, juniper and herbal pepper.
If you can handle the heat, there is a beautiful gin here. A little water brings out more sweetness and citrus on the palate.
