Re-Tasted: May 2013
A lovely crisp and herbal nose of juniper, elder flowers, chamomile, slightly salty citrus and a touch of orange. Lightly creamy in nature with some lightly oiled barley notes.
The palate is fresh and very herbal - bog myrtle, elder flowers, gorse, thyme and chamomile. The spirit itself has a pleasant creaminess along with featherlike barley sweetness. Lightly spiced on the middle, showing some cinnamon and coriander along with a gentle salinity. Good length with a light orange/ tangerine note in the finish
