Nose
Violet and orris on the nose, along with the slight sourness of berry sherbet.

Palate
Succulent strawberry and rhubarb on the palate, neatly balancing between sweetness and sourness. Notes of baking spice and a lingering ginger warmth develop over time.

Finish
Final rhubarb notes continue onto the finish, joined by a hint of sweet anise and fennel.

Comments
A fruity spirit with a reasonable level of complexity, although I’d like a little more gin character to shine through.

Score

7.3

Nose
Strawberry, peach and pineapple notes. Hints of juniper and sweet cinnamon, and a slight sourness like lime pickle. 

Palate
Notes of cooked summer fruits. A little mango chutney with some earthy savoury spice.

Finish
It fades fairly quickly on a light strawberry and balsamic note.

Comments
The fruit notes in this were a little over-stewed, however I could see it mixing in a summery cocktail with plenty of crushed ice.

Score

7.2
