Gin Citadelle No Mistake Old Tom 50cl
Free shipping to Portugal
In 1836, as he loitered in the bars of London, Charles Dickens marveled at “the ingenuity employed to give sobriquets to gin, with one term more seductive than the next, to describe it in multiple ways.” “No Mistake” is one of the nicknames Dickens noted and it seemed appropriate for this Old Tom, which we created in honor of this superb elixir. Gold color, it’s fresh and forceful, on the nose, the attack reveals juniper, orange zest and cardamom, then it becomes more floral and vegetal, with jasmine, honeysuckle and notes of fennel and cumin, almost sweet, with coffee. In the mouth it’s full and elegant, with a sweet and sour profile of preserved lemon zest, génépi, anise and almond, lengthening to spicy notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and cubeb pepper. Lovely length finish, floral, spicy and woody, with notes of coriander, violet, angelica, cumin, grains of paradise, and licorice.
