Served chilled, it's one of the few London Drys that I find relatively charming in one way or another (as I've said elsewhere, I'm actually not so crazy about the prominence of juniper in many gins). There's actually an interesting almost chocolatey note on the smell, with some earthy character rounding it out, lots of lemon and coriander. The juniper is there, but takes a bit of a back seat. Some licorice shows up as well. Taste starts with a boozy bitterness, more chocolate and earth, lemon, and then there's the juniper berries--bigger in the taste than the smell. There's some real heat here, some bitterness. Not my favourite gin, but it's one of the entry level offerings that I'm happy to enjoy in a G&T or with a lemon twist.
