Nose
Bright, tropical fruit notes are combined with slightly confectionery aromas of watermelon, cantaloupe melon, and pineapple. There is also a little nuttiness, almost reminiscent of a Mai Tai.

Palate
A dash of sweetness helps to give a well-rounded texture. The juniper is rather subtle, with the fruit notes really being the stars of this gin.

Finish
A little spirituous, with some lingering stone fruit and marzipan notes towards the end.

Comments
A fruit-forward gin that would be good in a gin punch, but some drinkers may like more juniper.

Score

7.3

Nose
Juicy pineapple with passionfruit and mango, toasted shaved coconut and some coconut cream, with a piney back note of juniper.

Palate
Silky texture. The tropical character softens slightly to reveal more juniper and some bright citrus notes. 

Finish
Thick coconut-cream panna cotta with roasted pineapple, followed by oily juniper notes.

Comments
The deliciously tropical profile of this gin feels suited to a tropical serve – maybe a Mai Tai, or a Piña Colada to tame its strength.

Score

8.4
