|Clean and classic on the nose, with lots of bright juniper, piney and warm. Fresh cut angelica stems as well lends it a clean floral brightness to it. Very classic, but really centered around those two notes. There’s mint-laden undernotes as well, with a crisp herbal complexity rounding things out. One of my favorite noses of 2016 so far.
|The palate begins with juniper, a crisp floral/mid-note with an almost fruity/jammy character, Hints of blackberry jam, hint of marmalade and chamomile, and then quite suddenly, a very strong minty note adding a bright freshness and mentholated coolness that encompasses the entire mouth. Flavorwise ,Dingle Gin lies somewhere between eucalyptus and mint, and then before the finish there’s another left turn with peppery crispness: coriander, cubeb pepper, and herbal green-ness.
|The finish is medium in length, mostly mint/herbal notes. Gentle warmth on the back palate. The spirit is crisp, though not oily nor overly thick. Despite it being rather thin, it delivers a great deal of flavor. Overall, I quite like it.
|Earthy nose, toffee caramel, spice. Peppery and almost herbaceous body. Very pleasant, warming.
|Neural in style with faint notes or charcoal and aniseed.
|Milde, white pepperish.
