Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The visual allure of Empress 1908 is immediately captivating. Its distinct indigo color, derived naturally from butterfly pea blossom, creates a show-stopping appearance that captures and holds the attention.
Upon nosing, Empress 1908 envelops the senses in an intricate bouquet of botanicals. Notes of juniper lend a traditional gin aroma, harmoniously intertwined with layers of citrus zest, aromatic spices, and an underlying floral nuance. The complexity of the nose preempts the multifaceted experience that awaits the palate.
The gin reveals a symphony of flavors, each carefully calibrated for a harmonious blend. Juniper leads the melody, bolstered by intricate harmonies of grapefruit peel, coriander, and ginger. The delicate bitterness of cinchona bark and the warm spice of cassia contribute to a robust yet balanced palate. The complexity does not overwhelm; instead, each sip reveals yet another layer, inviting continued exploration.
The finish is long and rewarding, characterized by the evolving interplay of botanical elements. As the immediate spice and juniper notes subside, a serene note of rose petal lingers, leaving a floral aftertaste that is at once calming and invigorating.
While the spirit is undeniably smooth, its medium-bodied texture ensures a tactile depth that complements its intricate flavor profile, rounding off a remarkably balanced tasting experience.
