Date Tasted:
Country: Germany
Alcohol: 44%
Rich aromas of grapefruit, lemongrass, and apple and cherry grilling woods with an intensely bitter, almost iodine-like herbal quality and a long astringent finish. In the gin martini, the grapefruit pith notes dominate the other citrus and spice qualities of the gin and take the cocktail in a more bitter herbal direction, as expected from the solo nosing and taste profile. Overall, the effect is like a magnifying lens on the more bitter and astringent qualities of the gin with a halo of grapefruit zest lingering retronasally.
