Nose: Marzipan and juniper waft up with waves of cinnamon and hot clove. Citrus swirls in the background, dancing with aromas of freshly baked cakes.
Palate: Almond and berries on the entry. The berries last throughout, thick and seriously flavoursome. Hints of vanilla. Oak tannins, too.
Finish: Spices last on the finish. Lip-smacking ensues.
Overall: Everything you ever wanted from a Sloe Gin. Enough classic berry notes with vibrant botanicals to bring it to life. Bring on summer for some Sloe cocktails, then bring on winter for hot mulled Sloe gin. Then bring on more Sloe gin. Everything is cyclical, you see...
