Clear. Light juniper nose. Medium body. Substantial juniper hit upfront that carries through to a lean citrus peel and quinine character. Finishes with a hefty wave of spicy heat. A substantial gin that would be great in a gin and tonic. (tastings. com)

A great depth of flavor, with a wonderfully fresh juniper, lemony bite with deeper earthy notes. It has a slight sweetness with extraordinary concentration and complexity. No single botanical dominates the overall flavor.
What they say. . .
"It's that smell. It is fabulous. It's got a really lovely junipery quality. But you can also actually feel the other rooty, earthy sort of flavorings in there. And when you come to taste it, it's soft, it's quite a strong spirit,. . . but it's round and it doesn't attack you at all. It's a very nice gin indeed. Good with tonic I'd say. "
