This was good, but seemed not

This was good, but seemed not quite balanced. It started out almost salty on the palate. I added a little lime and a bit of club and liked that a little better. Also, I made this with Bombay Sapphire East and I wonder if I should have chosen a gin with a different flavor profile. Not sure the peppery-lemongrass worked in this.
