Tasting Notes

"The aroma of orange and orange blossom practically reach right out of the glass to honk the nose! Aside from being VERY orangey (although in a pleasantly perfumey way), the juniper does manage to come come through in the back palate. What's interesting is despite its orangeness, it's not terribly sweet at all - more zesty than sweet - with hints of almond, pistachio and mint. "
