The nose is quite duty and barky, the cinnamon is very noticeable, but the juniper is very subtle. With time hints of liquorice root and angelica.

The palate pretty much mirrors the nose with the emphasis definitely on the cinnamon and coriander rather than the juniper. Good intensity and length with a light citrus finish.
