Distiller: Castle and Key
Bottler: Castle and Key
Brand: Castle and Key
ABV: 46.5% ABV
Nose: Sweet honey, coconut, citrus and pepper. Lovely coriander note as well as a hint of basil and some vanilla cream. Sweet, tropical, fruity and effervescent.
Taste: Really sweet on the palate along with some bitter pepper. Coconut is really quite prominent, as is the lemon and orange. Leans very sweet and fruity, along with some ethanol and bitter pepper. Juniper sits in the backseat and stays there.
Finish: Long, a bit hot, but sweet and fruit forward. Coconut and orange reign supreme with little else sticking around.
Overall: Enticing and certainly unique. It’s a bit unbalanced but it’s hitting a lot of notes I like. I’ll give it several points for creativity though it loses one for execution, leaving us with a well crafted and very good gin.
