This greatly exceeded expectations. Gin and IPA shouldn't work, but it does, with juniper, orange peel, melon on the nose, and with an added soft buttery and oak tannin flavor. Excellent!

Slight umeshu nose, plus a hint of funk & freshness behind. Bright, almost spritzy initial taste. Plum skin tannins, apple notes, slight herbiness. Perhaps a lil shiso. Great balance of sweet, sour, smooth, vinous, and Bretty dryness. Elegant & enjoyable.
