However, the juniper is still playing a starring role and is complemented rather than dominated by the other botanicals. The savoury, herbal elements are immediately evident, with the rosemary again taking centre stage alongside the classic juniper backbone. A lightness is created by the citrus and basil with a savoury olive undertone. There is a good depth of flavour and a lingering olive and thyme.
