Nose
Lots of nutty aromatics such as almond, followed by more nuanced notes of stone fruit. Sweet with a touch of acidity.

Palate
Flavours of cherry cola combined with vanilla, plum, and nectarine. Drier notes of marzipan and slightly bitter tannins follow.

Finish
The sweetness of apricot jam and amaretto move to drier notes with a hint of almond blossom.

Comments
A rich and fruity gin that would marry well with bitter lemon or lemon tonic.

Score

8.2

Nose
Delicious sweet and sour cherry aromas and an indulgent almond-marzipan note, along with juniper and cinnamon stick.

Palate
The sour cherry notes are more dominant, almost sloe-like, with a rich dollop of almond frangipane and a sprinkling of sweet spice. The texture is slightly viscous and juicy.

Finish
 Hints of stone fruit with vinous tannins a tiny touch of nutty sweetness.

Comments
A sophisticated fruit gin that would make a decadent Champagne cocktail.

Score

8.8
