A relatively modest nose, but clean, with aromas of juniper and a light woodiness.
A sparkle of juniper berries upfront is accompanied by earthy, rooty angelica and a lingering spiciness of coriander.
A touch of warmth on the finish with notes of black pepper.
A solid gin that ticks all of the boxes and has lovely alcohol integration.
Creamy and lemon citrus notes, like a lemon curd tart. Herbal thyme and tarragon, a hint of pine, and a slightly saline note.
Oily juniper, which lends texture, and a continuing woody pine note. Zesty lemon and hints of coriander, clove and nutmeg.
Drying, even slightly tannic on the finish, with a refreshing lemon note that verges on lemon-scented polish.
his had a nice texture and a classic character that would hold up well in a Tom Collins.
