Tasting Notes

"A fresh jonge jenever, with very light notes of juniper, coriander, and pine needles. There's a touch of rye bread and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is oily, with darker spices, such as cloves and nutmeg, and just a hint of juniper. A touch of aniseed too. Balanced and fairly complex."
