Appearance / Color Clear with a silvery, glycerous appearance. Aroma / Smell / Nose Crisp and fresh on the nose. The initial perfumed burst is of sweet berry / juniper and assorted fresh citrus peel; further aeration releases pine needle, lavender and clove-like scents. Distinctive and somewhat unconventional, some tasters found the aromatics a little cologne like. Flavor / Taste / Palate On the palate, this begins soft and glycerous, gradually building intensity, climaxing in an explosion of peppers; Mid palate is off dry and oily with juniper, lavender, pine needle and spice. Some tangy notes in the mouth add extra freshness to the traditional characters. Fairly complex. Finish Good balance of all components and racy, fresh finish, flavors persisting into the long, dry after taste. Comment Bracing stuff! Flavor Spiral Lavender, pine, dry, lingonberry, botanicals, sweet, berries, citrus peel, grain.
