Nose: There's the same rich juniper notes as we saw with batch 1, but there's more in the way of soft caramelised orange here. It's very mellow, but with a depth of botanicals that draw you further and further in. Creamy soft butter and vanilla sweetness.
Palate: A velvety mouth feel, it rolls easily over the tongue with that wonderful creamy orange sweetness. Juniper and sugared peel roll in and fade out slowly into the finish.
Finish: Orange creams, with a smooth, long-lasting sweet softness in the mouth.
Overall: The cask ageing has added such smoothness and creaminess to this gin. It's wonderful stuff.
