The nose smells sweet and inviting, a warm springy note of juniper and a bit of the cinnamon and chamomile. The overall character on the nose is rather classic in nature. The taste is where the gin truly reveals itself as squarely within the contemporary camp. The initial taste is a potent burst of Elderflower, nicely balanced with the some warm earthy notes, coriander and orris root predominantly. The middle is that bright note of cinnamon that was on the nose, hints of ginger?, but it all finishes with a warm and spicy note of juniper and that’s where the gin reveals its 94 proof heat.
