Distiller: Castle & Key
Bottler: Castle & Key
Brand: Castle & Key
ABV: 53% ABV
Nose: Big juniper, lemon and pepper. Behind that is some savory cassia, anise and cardamom. Powerful but complex.
Taste: Thick, syrupy mouth feel. Sweet anisem juniper and lemon. Orange peel and white pepper is there as well. Proof is welcome and in check. Rich and powerful overall.
Finish: Long, dominated by juniper, pepper, orange peel and essence of lemon. Delightfully powerful while remaining balanced and pleasant.
Overall: This is a killer gin, and one I’m a big fan of. This nails the London Dry style so perfectly, while remaining complex and interesting and powerful. Big props to C&K on this one. It’s wonderful neat, great in a variety of cocktails, and it makes a hell of a martini.
