Distiller: Limestone Branch
Bottler: Limestone Branch
Brand: Bowling & Burch
ABV: 48% ABV
Nose: Sweet cream, peppercorns, juniper, orange peel and papaya. Rich sweetness that goes so well with the pepper. Faint prick of ethanol.
Taste: Rich palate though with some heat. Sweet juniper, anise, orange peel, pepper and rising bread. Really prominent lemon curd note. Complex.
Finish: Short and a bit chemical but also loaded with a really fun blueberry note that pairs well with pepper, lots of juniper and some bay leaf.
Overall: Without being too sweet this is delightfully fruity, reigned in by a strong juniper character. I like it a lot, and if not for a little wrinkle here or there, this would likely reach beyond a 7, which is already great. Awesome stuff here.
