ABV: 45% ABV
Nose: Bright juniper, lots of citrus peel and some nice oak. Cassia, toffee and a hint of sweet maple. Lots going on. Really bright fruit note, lemon and lime, that is super inviting.
Taste: Sweet toffee, cream, honey and a dash of cinnamon. Bright lemon and lime, hint of white pepper and orange peel. Shortcake, really crisp juniper. Decadent with a hint of floral character.
Finish: Medium finish, but lots going on. More floral here, some pine, some juniper and nice pepper. Hint of orange peel, some lavender.
Overall: This is really impressive. Rarely do I find myself more impressed with a barrel aged gin over an unrated one but this is hitting all the right notes for me. Huge fan.
