Dingle Original Gin 42.5%

Tasted Nov/ Dec 2013

This Irish gin is distilled using Swedish grain neutral spirit with nine locally grown botanicals: juniper berries, rowan berries, fuschia, bog myrtle, heather, chervil, hawthorn, angelica and coriander.

The nose is fusty, lightly cardboard spiced with hints of perfumed rose water. Damp, fusty and cardboardy palate with a perfumed note and very, very, bitter spice. Conclusion: Nasty! It tastes like distilled Yardly!
