Coriander very much is like the plant cilantro. Some will taste the plant and say it has a light, even lemon-lime taste to it. Others who taste it will say it has a soapy taste to it. Cilantro has a similar effect on people. Due to this, gins with coriander may taste completely different to people who taste the refreshing portion of coriander while others might think the gin has an odd, soapy taste to it.
