Bright golden straw color. Aromas and flavors of juniper and lemon marinade, smoked nuts and meats, olive brine and soy, and geranium with a supple, dry medium body and a tingling, complex, long finish displaying suggestions of flaming citrus, olive stuffed with smoked cheese and ham, and honey finish. In the gin martini the woodsy, smoky, olive notes mesh nicely creating a dirty martini with a savory stuffed olive effect.
