One Secret Ingredient
Nose: Fragrant and complex, with notes of cardamom, coriander, pine and berries, this reminded me of a wooded glade filled with fruit trees and bushes.
Taste: Floral and herbal, with a touch of bitterness. There was also some cardamom pine, wood bark, heavy coriander, violet, chocolate and a hint of coffee.
Overall, this is a very rich and complex gin, and I think it is rather good.
Gin & Tonic
This G&T had a floral nose, the notes of which followed through on in the taste, alongside some herbal savoury notes; as such, it reminded me of the Russian Veresk gin. There was also a good, strong cardamon finish. Lovely stuff!.
Frankly… superb. So herbal, with strong, green, sappy juniper, rosemary, vanilla, forest, menthol, and hints of anise, lavender and coriander, with a touch of sweetness at the end.
This was a truly exceptional, superb and flavourful Martini.
Very pleasant; quite sweet, but with a good dose of fresh, herbal notes along with a bitter finish. A great way to enjoy the gin.
I think it’s obvious that I’m quite a big fan of this gin. In addition to having a complex and balanced flavour, it also has its own unique character that makes it stand out in a sea of gins.
