The newest special edition from Hendrick’s known as Neptunia, “unmistakably Hendrick’s at its core and impressed by the magic of the ocean,” with a “mix of coastal botanicals” utilized in its creation.
There’s not quite a lot of details about the identification of mentioned botanicals — the one stuff I ever see rising on the seashore is seaweed, algae, and scrub brush, however what do I do know — however Hendrick’s does reveal that Neptunia comprises cucumber (a Hendrick’s basic), mint, and elderflower along with some type of citrus and spice. Let’s give it a whirl.
Cucumber is obvious for certain, and mint can also be surprisingly robust on the nostril. Is it notably coastal? Respiration deep does enable some saltiness to grow to be evident, however it’s not notably heavy, providing a delicate, moist earthiness that remembers sage and a light-weight contact of dusky (males’s) fragrance. Citrus pops extra clearly on the tongue, with lemon and a grapefruit components rapidly rising. Initially creamy, with notes of vanilla, these greener natural notes make a reprise with a while in glass, recalling the components of a savory, herb-heavy stew. Whereas most (or all) of Hendrick’s particular releases to this point have leaned closely on flowers, Neptunia is the primary that basically doesn’t, providing only a gentle contact of potpourri to brighten up what in any other case tends a bit towards brooding. Extra English seaside than Miami Seaside, … which, I suppose, is strictly the purpose.
