      It's gin day in godzone. I tried this after some punchy flavoured gins; Shiraz Barrel; Douglas Fir; Saffron and then Chocolate. So straight I struggled to extract all the subtle flavors as my palate was a bit stuffed but it made a great mix for my Gin and Grapefruit drink. As an aside East Imperial tonic is the way to go, big step up from Feverfew. They do a wicked Grapefruit Tonic and the std one I can just drink straight all day long https://eastimperial.com/ Anyhow thanks @cascode I'm definitely going to try this again when my palate is fresh (so won't rate this time round) and if you haven't already try the Dingle whiskey...man a dairy farmer by trade and bam awesome whiskey!

      Nose: Led by an array of lemon fragrances (lemon zest, lemongrass, lemon verbena) and also some tangello. It's a clear and fresh citrus introduction followed by floral notes of lavender and honeysuckle with some fresh pine. Juniper takes a back seat for once. Palate: Smooth and full arrival with a distinctly floral palate. Lavender, rose and honeysuckle are all present along with other floral flavours I can't identify. I believe they include fuscia and heather among the botanicals so it's probably those elements I'm tasting for the first time. There are also some sweet berry notes like mild cranberry. The texture is creamy, rich and warming. Finish: Medium. The floral notes dominate and the aftertaste features a very aromatic tone almost like jasmine (again, this is probably coming from a botanical that I've not tasted previously). A very interesting gin and I can see why it has won so many awards. The field of modern gin contains many very good expressions but a lot of them are little more than variations on tried and tested themes. That's not to meant to denigrate the skill of artisanal producers or criticize fledgling whisky distillers for bringing out gin to create cash flow while their first stocks mature. It's just that this gin has a genuinely original palate. A nose with a floral focus is not unusual, but to find such intensity of floral botanicals on the palate is unexpected and the success of this gin is that it does this with masterful elan. However there is also a lower emphasis on juniper and citrus on the nose which leads it to seem a little shy at first. That's the one criticism I have and I'm knocking off a quarter-point from the rating. Otherwise this would be a 5-star gin. This gin is very good tasted neat with or without ice, and it's also supurb with tonic, making one of the most enjoyably flavourful G&Ts I've tasted. The nose retains its character even through tonic and on the rocks, and the palate is similarly robust. I was gifted a sample and the person who gave it to me recommended Fever Tree Elderflower tonic as a mixer. That might seem like gilding the lily with such a flavourful floral profile to begin with, but it works exceptionally well and I can recommend it highly. This gin rockets to the top shelf of my gin cabinet and it is even better than the very good Method & Madness Gin I tasted yesterday. "Excellent (very nearly Outstanding)" : 4.75 stars
