Nose: An initially juniper-rich bouquet is backed up with a solid backbone of rich grain spirit. Top notes of cardamom and orange blossom are evident with just a suggestion of cinnamon.
Palate: The initial focus is juniper, but the earthier botanicals make themselves known in the initial palate too. Mouthfeel is exceptionally viscous and creamy – this is good spirit, and it makes itself known.
Finish: The juniper subsides and gives way to the cardamom and cinnamon, with a late resurgence from orange peel.
Overall: A most unusual, but quite entrancing gin. To our knowledge this is the only cold-compounded gin currently available.
