Its stylish looks and image were able to give the dusty gin a boost. The juniper is in this aromatic gin less dominant in flavor than in traditional gins. On the nose very aromatic, perfumed. On the palate a delicate, slightly fruity taste, with various herbs and spices, slowly coming when the Gin is held in the mouth longer. The finish is short.
