Review #1655 | Gin Review #52

Distiller: Dry Fly

Bottler: Dry Fly

Brand: Dry Fly


ABV: 40% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Sweet and hoppy, lots of lemon, honey, vanilla, curd and sweet pepper. Juniper takes a back seat to lovely cassia and honey.

Taste: Sweet on the palate, loads of oak, honey, guava, sweet cinnamon and sugar. Not super thick or rich, but pleasant, oddly fruity, and delicious.

Finish: Long, sweet and loaded with honey, pear, cinnamon and some hops. Lovely and unique, not super bold but complex and well behaved.

Overall: This is delicious. Unique and fruity, especially with the cinnamon, but really enjoyable. I wouldn’t use this in a cocktail, but neat or on the rocks and you’re in business.

Thanks for reading!
