Our initial nosing of the gin revealed softness coupled with complexity. A whiff revealed menthol, spices, pine, anise, cloves, dried citrus peel, and a soft, floral finish of roses and grapes.
On the tongue, the gin was light in body, and was surprisingly soft and quaffable; none of the burning sensation one typically gets from spirit. We got an initial blast of citrus, which then transitioned into creamy sweetness of grapes and strawberries. Finally, it tailed off with a dry, spicy finish of anise and peppers.
