Retasted 2022... Complex aromas suggests earthy notes of orris and liquorice root, dried ginger, coriander seed, pine buds, citrus and more. Balanced but also impressively intense at just 41%; entry is sedate, classic London Dry-like and creamy; mid palate adds an attractive lemon lift as well as hints of orange spice cake, dried herbs and cool mint, finishing with a zesty tang. A fabulous composition of diverse flavours. 41% Alc./Vol.

First tasted 2018... [20ml sample of batch 10] Aroma accents fresh juniper, followed by orris root, coriander, citrus peel and liquorice root - so pretty classic London Dry. Textural and intense beyond its relatively low ABV, with a delicious integration of juniper, pepper and floral / minty notes. Excellent definition and lift. Nicely done. 94 points
