Nose: Marzipan and varied botanicals. A definite hint of coriander. Pronounced spices including cinnamon and cloves. Some citrus notes too. Fresh lemon, and a thick marmalade sweetness.
Palate: Big almond taste with dark forest berries. Blackcurrants and sweet vanilla with a balanced hit of oaky tannins.
Finish: A dry nutty finish that contrasts perfectly with the sweet attack. There are some bitter dark chocolate notes here too.
Overall: A sophisticated take on the classic sloe gin with more to offer than simple berry sweetness.
