Greenall’s Gin Tasting Notes

Posted: March 6, 2015 in English Gin, Gin, White Spirits

Greenall’s London Dry Gin 37.5%

Tasted: Sept 2014

A soft, creamy spirit dominated nose. Very subtle juniper with a light herbal character. It’s a bit innocuous to be honest with late notes of angelica and perfumed rose petal.

The palate is soft and a touch watery. Again simple and fairly bland with the focus on the creamy spirit and not much juniper. A little hot on the finish with maybe a touch of spice in the after-taste.

Opihr Oriental Spiced London Dry Gin 40%

Distilled by G&J (Greenhalls) Distillers

Botanicals include: Malaysian cubeb pepper, Indian black pepper, Morrocan coriander, Turkish cumin, Venetian juniper and Spanish orange.

Tasted: Apr 2015

A nose of crisp, fresh juniper and black pepper. With time it becomes quite rounded and creamy with hints of coriander and bitter woody notes.

The palate is soft, sweet and sugary with hints or orange, juniper, coriander and black pepper. Lightly perfumed finish with a spirity bite. To be honest it sort of runs out od steam on the finish and the after-taste is pretty sugary.
