The Botanist Islay Dry Gin Tasting Notes;
Nose; Sweet delicate menthol, apple mint, spring woodlands, juniper, coriander with aniseed undertones, lemon and orange peel, a bouquet of summer flowers on the machir, honey from thistle, coconut from gorse, wild mint and summer meadows.
Palate; rich and mellow; cool on entry then as it reaches the back palate you can feel the warmth and absolute purity of slow unhurried distillation.
Finish; This is a bewitching, delectable and luxurious gin; its citrus freshness excites and stimulates the taste buds.
