Edingburgh Lemon & Jasmine Gin
Nose: Citrus and floral dominates the nose. Dusty jasmine with hints of honeysuckle and gardenia sit atop a strong tart, almost bitter citrus note. While there are lemon facets, I’m also getting hints of Seville Orange and white grapefruit.
Flavor: Oily, lemon peel dominates early. Mid-palate, classically pine-forward juniper is accented by hints of sweet orange, angelica root and green lavender. On the back of the palate, lemon continues to be the dominant flavor, with breathy, musky hints of jasmine flower.
Finish: Fairly long finish but at a quiet volume. Lemon and orange citrus slowly ebb into crisp notes of pine bud.
