New Western Style Gin
Price per bottle: Availability: US, Canada
Nose: Quite shy at first, but with time, juniper and powdered spice notes emerge alongside a little citrus peel. A slight woody, savoury note in the back, like truffle.
Palate: Very, very light umami mushroom at first, then glacé cherry, orange, angelica, and slightly oily juniper, accompanied by caramel milk chocolate.
Finish: Leaves a drying warmth with notes of juniper, orange oil and faint milk chocolate.
Comments: The sweetness in this gin could work in a creamy cocktail, such as an Alexander.
Nose: A light nose, but perhaps it is a little more closed because of the higher ABV: faint wisps of juniper, lemon, and orris.
Palate: Full of flavour with coriander and spicy cassia bark. It’s an oily gin with a texture that coats the mouth and tongue. It’s also on the spicy side, backed up by citrus, but the balance is good and, overall, the spirit has a pleasant plumpness.
Finish: Bready notes come through, as well as sweet spice.
Comments: A oily, wellmade gin that would pair well with ginger ale in a Gin Buck.
